“The goal is to take Omani companies internationally — something we’re looking to pursue through the Ministry of Oil and Gas. Initially, Omani contractors will be able to tap into opportunities in the Qatar oil and gas industry via this platform.”
PDO, the country’s largest oil and gas operator, says it is working to encourage its vast pool of vendors to register under the JSRS. “We have currently around 3,200 vendors registered with PDO. Of this number, around 800 have registered via the JSRS. Our target is to get all of our vendors to shift to the JSRS by mid-year,” said Salim al Harthy of PDO’s In-Country Value Department.
