PDO’s local business development mission is to improve the capacity and capability of the local companies with which we engage, in order to achieve cost reductions, continuous business improvement in PDO’s operations and contribute to Omani economic growth and job creation for Omanis.
Local business development has been identified as one of the key enablers to support the success of the ICV journey.
PDO supports the developments of SMEs through multiple programs and initiatives to deliver the below:
PDO has been careful to ensure local communities benefit from our activities. Therefore, in 1998, PDO has launched the Local Community Contractor (LCC) initiative; to give people living in the concession area opportunities to establish their own companies. These companies would provide services to PDO and bid for supply contracts. PDO has reserved an LCC scope in main contracts and offered guidance and support. There are now specialised LCCs in maintenance, logistics, electronics, civil engineering, manpower supply, and well services.
This story has evolved into an exciting new phase. PDO has also established four Super Local Community Contractors (SLCCs) – larger-scale operations generating new employment avenues and entrepreneurship opportunities for thousands more Omanis. The SLCCs are businesses working on hoists, well interventions and flow line replacement, which collectively have around 9,300 shareholders, all from within the PDO concession area.
PDO has established a dedicated team helping SLCCs to identify and develop business opportunities. These opportunities include specially ring-fenced work in contracts assigned to each of the four SLCCs covering PDO’s core business. In addition to the allocation of these contracts, PDO has provided dedicated support to the SLCCs, including:
Overall, the four SLCCs progressed very well, focusing on business growth efficiency and ramping up Omanisation. From the outset, the SLCCs have prioritised recruiting, developing, and retaining an Omani workforce, especially from the concession area.
