Information Technology and Telecommunications

From Day one, PetroMasila’s Information Technology and Telecommunications Department has been central to the company’s success. When a rather abrupt transition to national control caused some observers to doubt PetroMasila’s ability to adapt, the IT department – through a melding of high standards, professionalism and ingenuity – has proved itself integral in re-establishing the company as a regional leader.

Exhaustive procedures are undertaken to ensure that water which is separated from oil and re-injected into the earth is pure, clear and able to meet all possible environmental standards. Offshore, rigorous marine testing is carried out as part of PetroMasila’s approach to preventing harmful situations from occurring in the first place. Continue Reading.
