Leaving his comfort zone to create Oman’s flagship brand

Dr. Mohammed Barwani has succeeded in oilfield services, exploration and production, engineering and manufacturing and mining. When he left a comfortable job at the Petroleum Development Oman (PDO), his entrepreneurial zeal led him to his biggest venture – his flagship brand MB Petroleum Services.

Realizing a need to diversify, he began Petrogas E&P, United Engineering Services LLC and Mawarid Mining – the largest mining company in the Sultanate. The Group has operations in 20 countries, 6,800 employees and revenues in excess of US$ 1.2 billion.
