Amal Oil Field Goes Full Throttle on Operational Revamp

In a significant move to upgrade its operational standards, Amal Oilfield engaged Qabas to implement ISO 14001 and ISO 45001 certifications. This full-throttle approach aimed to enhance operational efficiency and safety protocols without disrupting oil production. Qabas executed a holistic approach, incorporating gap analysis, customised action plans, targeted training, and continuous monitoring.

  • International Best Practices

We were responsible for developing and implementing advanced management systems aligned with ISO 14001 and ISO 45001 standards, ensuring sustainable and safe operations at Amal Oil Field. This strategic initiative was crucial for maintaining the field’s operational integrity and securing its future as a leader in the oil and gas industry.
