ARA Petroleum Oman Block-44 –
Our mission is to be fully focused on the value that can be brought to Oman through the recovery of its valuable oil and gas resources, by leveraging our capacity as a safe, efficient and effective producer and explorer.
The operatorship of Block-44, which covers an area of 1,162km2, commenced at the beginning of 2017, which entailed the management, operation and production of the existing wells within the Shams and Munhamir fields.
Providing a safe work environment and ensuring that both our staff and contractors are appropriately trained and active participants in the identification and management of risks and hazards is paramount to our operating philosophy and beliefs. As a team we have recently achieved a significant milestone 2,000,000 (Two Million) manhours without a recordable incident during the two-year period that the operations have been managed by ARA Petroleum. We remain resolute in our focus towards our goal of Target Zero, with no harm to people and no harm to the environment.
Since the establishment of the company we have rapidly enhanced the competency, capability and capacity of the company by adding highly qualified national employees and have further complemented this through the addition of a number of extensively experienced international employees. The team is actively pursuing exploration, appraisal and development of the oil and gas opportunities that exist within Block-44.
We have demonstrably delivered against our commitment with respect to providing employment opportunities for Omani nationals, and through the continued onboarding of local talent our Omanisation level has now reached 90%. We are proud of not only this distinction, but also the measures and activities that contribute towards the continued training and development of our staff and the career opportunities that are available to them.
