PDO joins forces with Gulf Energy to create 600 job opportunities for Omanis

PDO OmanPetroleum Development Oman (PDO) has announced a partnership with integrated oilfield services provider Gulf Energy SAOC (GES) for the creation of 600 job opportunities for Omanis in its product line services in both Oman and abroad

As part of its long established In-Country Value programme and the continued creation of job opportunities for skilled Omanis, PDO has agreed with GES to employ 150 Omanis every year for the next four years in wells construction, interventions and industrial services. This will help in localising these jobs and provide support in building Omani capabilities to reach their potential in both the local and international arenas. 

The Memorandum of Collaboration (MOC) detailing this initiative was signed on 3 December at a ceremony held under the auspices of HE Dr Mohammed bin Hamad Al Rumhy, Minister of Energy and Minerals.  

The focus on both creating job opportunities nationally and internationally supports Oman Vision 2040 to shape “A dynamic labour market that is attractive to talent and responsive to demographic, economic, knowledge and technical changes”. 

PDO managing director Raoul Restucci said, “Job creation for Omanis is very clearly a primary focus for ICV and its impact is not only witnessed by the country at large but by every single family of employed personnel who benefit from it.”

“Expanding building Omani capabilities beyond the local labour market is a milestone in developing global citizens who are competitive in the international labour market. This is closely aligned with Oman vision 2040 and supports internationalisation of the Sultanate’s capabilities abroad,” he added.
