"In the first bidding for Pakistan State Oil, OOMCO emerged as one of the top six consortiums to have succeeded amongst international competitors," Omar Qatan, CEO Oman Oil said, adding:

"Being part of such ventures is proof that the hard work put forth into the company by the staff have been internationally recognised. The sheer invitation of becoming a potential strategic partner in such exercises also demonstrates the capabilities and strategic outlook of the OOMCO." OOMCO, Qatan said, had been invited and selected to participate in the pre- qualification exercises owing to its experience and track record since the withdrawal of BP from the Sultanate in 2002. This is the third time in six months that the company has been approached for overseas opportunities.
