Local time

Petrofac has been working in Oman for more than three decades, helping our clients to unlock more value from their hydrocarbon resources.

Our teams have been supporting the Sultanate’s oil and gas industry since 1988 to design, build, operate and maintain oil and gas facilities, as well as developing local workforce competence and generating in-country value (ICV).

We’ve delivered a significant number of oil and gas projects supporting both major national and international clients. Our track record includes the provision of:

  • Engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) projects
  • Engineering, procurement and construction management (EPCm) projects
  • Operations and maintenance (O&M) support contracts
  • National workforce development, training and competence solutions delivered through our technical training facilities

We have a long-term Framework Agreement (FA) with Petroleum Development Oman (PDO) for the provision of EPCm support services for major oil and gas projects in the Sultanate. Projects undertaken through the FA will be supported by our Muscat office for technical delivery and to ensure we generate sustainable in-country value.

Delivering in-country value

Oman is a strategically important location for us and we support the country’s Omanisation objectives. We are focused on maximising the local supply chain and resources, working hard to be an integral part of the local community.

We recruit and train Omani personnel as well as utilise and develop Omani service providers and vendors. Our growing engineering office in Muscat further demonstrates our commitment to being an integral and sustainable part of the local market.
