Mr. Fadul AbdallaVice President
Since its incorporation, GNPOC has a genuine role to play beyond creating value to the government and our partners. It supports our entire society and the national economy as well, through contributing in improving the oil industry in Sudan.
Following the international standards especially in HSE areas, GNPOC always gives a model example of how to run operations safely and effectively. Utilizing the appropriate technologies is always our approach to enhance oil production and optimize cost so as to maximize value.
One of the critical roles of GNPOC management, is hiring local manpower, developing their professionalism and enhancing their standard of living. We regard the intellectual and operational skills acquired by our human resources as the driver of the company's growth. So, within this context, GNPOC has spent considerable portions of its budget on training our human resources so as to operate the facilities efficiently and give them the opportunities to train the following generation to deliver in the same manner and with the same level of commitment. The social aspect is always present in our plans. We believe in our social responsibility towards the local communities in the vicinity of our facilities. Our provision of social services to these communities will let them feel the significance of our operations to extract oil from the underground, and hence a certain level of understanding, friendly neighborhood and trust will be created between communities and us. This in turn will help in resolving some of the security concerns in the concession areas.
Despite opportunities of progress, there are may major challenges facing GNPOC, some of the most important relate to the geopolitical aspects, dropping oil prices and international market limitations. But by the sincere cooperation with our Government Partners and other stakeholders, with spare no effort to overcome such a challenges for benefit of all. And pleasantly, I take this opportunity to acknowledge to continuous support that we usually receive from these parties to facilitate our operations. Lets look forward to a brighter future and work jointly to achieve our vision of being as a premium petroleum operating company.
Thank You and Regards
Mr. Fadul Abdalla
