Our track record as an international operator spans many countries, with current operators in Iraq and United Arab Emirates (UAE), and significant interests in Egypt, Turkmenistan and many other countries. Our Journey as a company is inextricably linked to our offshore discoveries in the Mubarek Field in 1972, a landmark project that catapulted both GULFOGEC onto the International Oil and gas scene.

While Abu Dhabi and Dubai discovered Oil in 1958 and 1966 respectively, Sharjahs production commenced in 1974 following our discoveries. Since then, we have witnessed the tremendous growth of this Emirate, and are proud to have played a meaningful role in its development. Setting the world record at that time, Gulf Oil had the Mubarek Field in full production within 13 months of its discovery, at a rate of over 60, 000 barrels per day.
