BREAKING RECORDS FROM DAY ONE

Only 3 months after PetroAlliance was established, we were awarded the largest Camp Construction Project in the oil and gas sector to date in the Kurdistan Region of Iraq. The client was Afren MENA Ltd. and the project was located in its Barda Rash Block. Senior managers from IOCs including Chevron have since visited the camp, stating that it’s the best camp they have ever seen during their time in the oil and gas industry.

CONSOLIDATING RELATIONS WITH OUR CLIENTS

As testament to a pioneering and first class main camp that we managed to build for Afren MENA Ltd., following on from submitting an excellent proposal, we were ultimately awarded another contract with them, namely to provide Catering and Maintenance Services for all staff living and working at the camp. To this day, many onsite staff as well as visitors have mentioned that without doubt, the best food they have ever eaten at a remote-camp in the Kurdistan Region of Iraq has been at the Barda Rash main camp.

STREAMLINING OUR BUSINESS

Throughout 2014, as the business grew, particularly in the areas of remote-camp life support and maintenance and in-city life support, we focused on internal company processes and procedures. Human resources, accounting, business development, procurement, logistics, operations and health & safety all developed into separate departments.

WORKING WITH TWO OIL MAJORS

Firstly, we were awarded an ExxonMobil OPF Camp Maintenance Project at Pirmam & Betwata in January 2014. Building a relationship with ExxonMobil, who have 6 blocks in the KRI and are the largest operator in the country, was a major stepping-stone for PetroAlliance and was part of the 2014 corporate strategy.

Additionally, following on from the award of a life support project in 2013, we were pleased to add to that a Procurement Services Master Contract with Chevron in Q2 of 2014. This was a milestone for PA as it was a further achievement in PA’s 2014 corporate strategy of building relationships with the International Oil Companies operating in the region, as well as expanding the procurement business line.


2015

STRENGTHENING OUR PROJECT PROCESSES AND PROCEDURES

We expanded and focused on the remote-camp life support and maintenance systems, and procurement business lines. Under the Kurdistan Region’s oil and gas projects contracting regime, a service provider, such as PA, can only work with an IOC through a successful and competitive tender, approved by the Ministry of Natural Resources. Therefore, we decided to place more emphasis on our project execution process and procedures, and the documents that describe them, in order to increase the quality of our proposal submissions. Our written standard operating procedures are based on our actual operations and experience, and we believe that this is where PA has excelled in matching international standards.
