Working in Oman

By harnessing our unique strengths, together we can tackle the toughest technical challenges

In 2007 we made an agreement with the Omani government to produce natural gas in a 2,800 square kilometre region in central Oman. This region is rich with natural gas reservoirs, and we are taking on a wide range of high-calibre upstream professionals who can work in a culture of mutual respect and co-operation to deliver the energy we need, today and tomorrow.


Our biggest project will be in Block 61’s Khazzan gas field, where we will be substantially increasing the field’s capacity. With the emphasis on safety, reliability and operational excellence, we plan to drill around 300 new wells, aiming to produce around one billion cubic feet of gas per day. 

The low porosity of the rock in Oman’s gas reservoirs makes extracting gas a significant technical challenge. Do you have the expertise to help solve this and other interesting challenges? 

BP’s Omani headquarters are in Muscat, from where we co-ordinate Block 61. 

Learning and development

As we continue to grow, even more emphasis will be placed on world-class learning and development. Whatever your background, whatever your role, we will invest in you to develop your personal and professional skills in line with your aspirations. The success of our business in Oman and that of our employees goes hand in hand. So we’ll make sure you have access to structured courses, online learning, mentors and other methods for ensuring you continue along a flexible career path. Where possible, we will support you to gain qualifications relevant to your field. Our performance management process will set clear, achievable objectives for you and help you to track your progress in achieving them. 

Diversity and inclusion

We work as one team, bringing together people from a range of backgrounds whose different perspectives enrich our business. That’s why we value diversity and inclusion. Everyone at BP is treated fairly, with respect, and is encouraged to voice their opinion. Each member of the team knows what is expected of them and is given every opportunity to realize their potential in a pleasant, supportive and collaborative environment.
