OPC awarded licence to operate in Kurdistan region
OPC has been awarded an official licence to provide oil and gas reservoir studies, manpower and technical training to oil companies operating blocks within the Kurdistan Region of Iraq.
Oilfield Service Company Licence
In the spring of 2019, OPC was successfully issued an Oilfield Service Company (OSC) Registration Licence by the Ministry of Natural Resources (MNR) of the Kurdistan Regional Government. Under this OSC licence OPC were subsequently granted listing on the Approved Vendors List (AVL) in the following services categories;

The OSC licence and AVL listing means OPC can now provide its full suite of services to Oil & Gas companies operating blocks within the Kurdistan Region of Iraq.
Riley Smith, MENA manager for OPC said
We are delighted not only to have received listing on the approved vendors list but also to have successfully utilised this status to support projects in Kurdistan. Since the award of the licence earlier this year, OPC has provided a number of specialist consultants to Clients operating in Kurdistan. There is a large presence of oil & gas companies in the UAE with operations in Kurdistan, which makes OPC well placed to support these clients through our Dubai office.”
