Petroleum Development Oman (PDO)

Petroleum Development Oman (PDO) is the leading exploration and production company in the Sultanate of Oman. We deliver the majority of the country’s crude oil production and natural gas supply, but above all we focus on delivering excellence, growth and sustainable value creation within and well beyond our industry. The Company is owned by the Government of Oman (with a 60% interest), Royal Dutch Shell (34%), Total (4%) and Partex (2%). The first economic oil find was made in 1962, and the first oil consignment was exported in 1967. The primary objective of PDO is to engage efficiently, responsibly and safely in the exploration, production, development, storage and transportation of hydrocarbons in the Sultanate. The Company seeks a high level of performance with the aim of furthering the long-term benefits of its shareholders, its employees and the society of Oman in line with our core values of honesty, integrity and respect. This approach to business is underpinned by our vision to be renowned and respected for the excellence of our people and the value we create for Oman and all our stakeholders.

Cybersecurity Partner

Insight Information Security

Insight Information Security was established in 2003 with the aim of introducing IT security innovations to the Omani market. The company was founded by two Omani IT professionals who favored business engagement over stable jobs in the banking sector. The co-owners Mr. Mohsin Al Salmi and Rashid Al Salmi are still at the top of the corporate structure, leading the strategic planning as well as technical oversight on operational aspects. Their individual profiles assist in improving the reputation and outreach of business while maintaining reasonable control over operational business processes. Insight’s first presence was established in a small office, with barely enough capacity to accommodate a few employees, and later grew to reinvent its image as a leader in the IT security services sector. Over the past decade, Insight’s market share has risen sharply, and it continues to grow at a comfortable annual rate since. In 2019, Insight crossed a new milestone when it established a security operations center (SOC) in the heart of Muscat, allowing it to expand its portfolio and cover a wider range of operational activities including 24x7 security monitoring, on-demand security testing, forensics, and threat intelligence. Insight's services were consequently expanded to cover Red Teaming, SOC services, Systems Integration and Compliance Advisory Services. Today, Insight is a leader in its domain, and is highly certified and recognized as a modern entity with proven capabilities, accredited performance and mature business processes.
