Rumaila Oilfield – Drilling for Morale

ROO C&EA team & Pulse Brands


The Rumaila Operating Organisation (ROO) manages the state-owned Rumaila oilfield which accounts for ~30% of Iraq’s GDP. It is a partnership between the Iraqi South Oil Company, PetroChina and BP, with the latter as the lead contractor.

However, with war in the north and the oil barrel price falling 50%, ROO’s 2016 operating budget was severely cut – yet a corresponding fall in oil production would be disastrous for Iraq. The C&EA team and Pulse Brands helped the leadership team to successfully maintain high production by introducing a 6-month staff recognition programme to motivate and inspire the 6,800 Iraqi workforce.
