A significant part of Petrofac’s heritage and journey is closely associated with Sharjah. We first established our presence in the Emirate in 1991 and in that time have developed a large multi-national workforce supporting both regional and international projects.
Our two flagship ‘towers’, in Sharjah’s Al-Khan district, are an iconic landmark for the business. We’re able to accommodate around 4,000 employees between the two adjacent buildings.
We provide a full range of engineering, design, procurement and construction services to the oil and gas industry in both upstream and downstream, onshore and offshore.
Supporting our international portfolio of projects includes:
Our colleagues in Sharjah are united by strong values and a passion for what we do. We enjoy going beyond what is expected for our clients and coming up with innovative approaches to our projects.
We’re committed to ensuring our employees receive the right personal development and technical training. We offer a range of courses and career support through The Petrofac Academy, our in-house centre of excellence for employee development.
We also organise a range of social and community-based events for our employees, including:
Supporting the local community
With a large workforce and many of our employees and their families living in Sharjah, we are proud to be involved in the local community. We have a number of relationships in place with local NGOs, charities and educational establishments. We’ve been a donor to the American University of Sharjah (AUS) for many years, and have close ties with the School of Engineering through an endowed scholarship programme. We enjoy supporting the university’s key education-based events, including a youth mentorship programme, career fairs and lecture series.
We are delighted to be recognised as a 2016 Sharjah Top 10 business by the Sharjah Economic Excellence Network and Chamber of Commerce, acknowledging our achievements in the Emirate and our contribution to the UAE’s wider economy.
