The 'Local Community Contractor' (LCC) Special Status is for companies operating within the concession areas of certain Operators. LCCs who meet specific criteria, as defined by these Operators, are identified on the JSRS Certificate as ‘Special Status’ LCC. Companies with the LCC Special Status benefit from priority procurement opportunities from respective Operators.
These LCC initiatives are exclusive to Omani companies – the owners of the company are permanent residents of any of the cities listed by the LCC Certificate providers. The LCC Special Status approval on the Certificate is currently endorsed by Petroleum Development of Oman (PDO), CC Energy Development (CCED), Duqm Refinery and Occidental of Oman (OXY).
A valid JSRS Certificate is a mandatory pre-requisite for acquiring the Zonal Certifications.
