VP Oman


Gulf Energy is the National Champion of Oman. We are one of the first, largest, and fastest growing local oilfield service providers in in the Sultanate. We provide a wide range of services in oil and gas and lead the industry in Oman in coiled tubing, drilling services, fishing and remedial, and cementing. In fact, we are proud to be the largest local provider of coil tubing units and the first local company to provide cementing services in Oman.

As a customer centric company, we put our customers’ satisfaction at the center of everything we do. We strive to deliver best in class services, latest technologies, and creative solutions to help our customers achieve their targets and resolve their challenges. We are also close to our customers; we listen to their needs and work on their behalf.

Key to our success is our commitment to the safety of our employees and operations. Nothing is more important than ensuring that our employees return safely to their loved ones. Our commitment to health and safety guides everything we do, and we are constantly looking for innovative ways to improve our safety performance and reach our goal of zero incidents.

Social responsibility is also one of our core values and we do not waiver in our commitment to developing the national workforce and economy in Oman. Our commitment to increasing our in-country value led to the establishment of two state-of-the-art local manufacturing facilities in Oman that currently produce down-hole and fishing equipment as well as casing accessories. At the same time, Omani men and women make up 83% of Gulf Energy’s total workforce and 86% of our management. Finally, through our global network and partnerships, we are opening employment channels for Omanis in the MENA region. This will enhance cross learning and knowledge transfer, which will further advance the professional development of Omani talents.

Our goal over the next few years is to continue to grow our portfolio of services and exceed our customers’ expectations. We plan to improve our operational efficiency and increase our contributions to the local economy and community. We also plan to deepen our collaboration with our international partners and sister companies to bring more technologically advanced solutions to the Omani market and export locally manufactured products from Oman to the world.

We are very proud of our achievements and look forward to an exciting future. As we remain focused on growth, dedicated to contributing locally, and focused on satisfying our customers, I am sure we will achieve our goals and exceed our targets. Also, through our international reach, we will generate great value for the company and our customers.

I look forward to embarking on this exciting journey with all of you.
