Having achieved a successful transition to national ownership, PetroMasila’s predominantly Yemeni workforce is in a perfect position to give back to communities that are not only familiar, but often not far from home.
Whether at the CPF or terminal facility, PetroMasila’s bond with surrounding communities is based on active and open communication, attentiveness to needs and a desire for constructive engagement. A place of employment for a large number of Hadhramis, PetroMasila also seeks to provide much-needed services.
In the village of Ghail Bin Yamin, which lies near PetroMasila’s CPF facility, industrial-strength generators provide residents with electricity in the evening hours. Meanwhile, a newly-introduced well delivers fresh water to all who need it. Both the generators and the construction of the well came free of charge from PetroMasila, and represent the company’s ground-level approach to meeting local needs.
In an area sorely lacking adequate medical facilities, PetroMasila’s CPF facility opens its gates to local citizens to provide them with the same high quality of medical care it offers its own employees.
On a larger level, PetroMasila recognizes the value of large-scale investments in local areas. Looking beyond generators which can provide power for whole villages, PetroMasila recently gave $2 million to the local government, to be put towards improving the local electricity grid.
