Transformed office primes Petrofac for next Oman chapter

Petrofac has transformed an office space of more than 2,000 square metres in Muscat to facilitate the next chapter of the Company’s growth and development journey in Oman. The new space, which hosts more than 200 team members from Petrofac and client organisations, was marked with a launch ceremony.

Identifying energy efficiencies at every level of Scope 1*

The Muscat office was revamped with the goal of minimising its environmental impact and maximising energy efficiency. The refurbishment will reduce energy consumption by a targeted 35%.

Constructed by Towell Talati, a local company specialising in architecture, interior design and construction administration, the office space comprises smart building technology that optimises use of water, lighting and air conditioning, and drives paperless processes to maximise energy efficiency.

Dr Khalid Al Jahwari, Petrofac’s Country Manager – Oman, said:

“At Petrofac, we have set an ambitious target over the next three years to reduce 3% in Scope 1 and 2 emissions intensity annually, through adoption of renewable energy, emissions reductions, and cleaner transport. Part of our Net Zero action plan, our refurbished office now adopts the latest decarbonisation and employee wellbeing guidance to promote more efficient use of energy and water, and maximise natural lighting.

As we continue to expand our team in Oman, extending our collaboration with local communities and supply chains remains a key focus to build the economy of the Sultanate and create shared value. Working with local suppliers such as Towell Talati and generating In-Country Value is central to the way we operate.”

This open-planned office is dedicated to a seven-year project delivery contract that Petrofac are executing with partner, and main PDO contract holder, Arabian Industries Projects LLC, for selected PDO concession areas in the North of Oman.
