Chairman`s Message

Oman’s Oil and Gas Industry has been the foundation of the country’s economic growth over the five decades since the ascension of His Majesty Sultan Qaboos bin Said to the throne in 1970. The Zubair Corporation has been involved in many aspects of this vital sector for more than forty years by providing essential products and services across many disciplines that include both the upstream and downstream sectors.

The formation of ARA Petroleum in 2014 was the natural progression of this expertise, The Zubair Corporation was able to harness many of the various industry components and bring them together within ARA Petroleum.

The company is managed by an experienced, professional and committed team, which has an enviable track record, gained from working throughout in the oil and gas industry both internationally and in Oman. Key to ARA’s success is their ability to explore and develop hydrocarbon resources quickly and efficiently for the benefit of all stakeholders.

Naturally though, throughout our operations HSSE is our most critical focus with the concept of No Harm to People, No Harm to The Environment our fundamental doctrine.
ARA Petroleum is securing a balanced portfolio of assets both within Oman and internationally; assets with value waiting to be unlocked.

ARA Petroleum is an exciting component of The Zubair Corporation’s business and we very much look forward to its continued growth and success over the coming years.
