PDO continues to implement its aspiration to be true to its principles and deliver energy resources to Oman and its international customers in a safe, socially responsible, economically efficient and environmentally conscious way. At the same time, our work in the wider community is also of paramount importance. Here, we shine a light on some of our initiatives both within and beyond the oil and gas sector.
Wells Learning Centre

As part of its effort to create and retain world class Omani wells professionals, PDO opened a new Wells Learning Centre in 2014, with support from the Ministry of Oil and Gas and Shell as a partner, to meet the challenges of the changing operating environment and the growth in activities.​​



PDO Staff Volunteering Project: Baader

The award-winning Baader project allows PDO staff to volunteer their time and expertise to help non-governmental organisations and charities and make a positive contribution to Omani society. It also lends its support to programmes in which the Omani government and other institutions are involved.

Banat Oman

PDO’s social enterprise Banat Oman – a vocational training initiative to imbue low-income women with the skills they need for sustainable employment – has blossomed, training over 300 women to date. The Company has invested RO 150,000 to initiate the project, in partnership with the Omani Women’s Association, to train a number of women from across the country in various handicrafts, such as tailoring and embroidery, dairy and bakery products manufacture, leathercraft, camel bone carving and silversmithing.

Tell A Friend

In partnership with the Royal Oman Police and several non-governmental organisations, such as the Oman Road Safety Association, the Company has launched the nationwide Tell A Friend road safety campaign in 2013 to urge the public to spread the message about more responsible driving to their family, friends and colleagues.
