Social Responsibility

" We understand the culture "

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.

Environment and Us

Just as PetroMasila utilizes a wide variety of production methods, so too does it incorporate a complex yet responsive approach to the environment. 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.
