OMV (Pakistan) is a 100% subsidiary of OMV Aktiengesellschaft which is Austria’s largest listed industrial company, with Group sales of EUR 15.6 billion and a workforce of 5,226 employees in 2005, as well as market capitalization of approx. EUR 18 billion. As the leading oil and gas group in Central Europe, OMV is active in Refining and Marketing (R&M) in 13 countries and in Exploration and Production (E&P) OMV is active in 18 countries on five continents.

In Pakistan, OMV has been active as an operator and partner since 1990.

The company was incepted as part of a Joint Venture, consisting of OMV Pakistan as the Operator, Hardy Oil & Gas (now ENI group), Pakistan Petroleum Limited (PPL), and Oil & Gas Development Company Limited (OGDCL).

In the years to date OMV (Pakistan) has established itself as the largest international gas producer in Pakistan with an operated volume of more than 110,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day from Kadanwari-Miano and Sawan fields. This represents about 16% of the total gas produced in Pakistan.

The first significant achievement was the discovery of the Miano gas reservoir in the Thar Desert of Sindh province. It came about by the end of 1993; just three years after OMV came to Pakistan.

The second major breakthrough came five years later i.e. in 1998, from the field named Sawan, again in the same area of Sindh. Sawan was and still is one of the largest discoveries of gas reserves in Pakistan. In a record nineteen months from the ground-breaking ceremony in January 2002 of the Sawan Gas Plant, OMV was able to sell its raw gas by July 2003.
Parallel to the Sawan development OMV also took over the operator-ship of the Kadanwari Gas Processing Plant on 1stJanuary 2003 from Lasmo, currently ENI. OMV remained quite aggressive on new developments and Kadanwari plant gas processing capacity was enhanced to 232 MMscfd while Sawan plant capacity has been enhanced to 400 MMscfd. To further meet raw gas requirements development drilling was continued successfully for both fields.

OMV is, also actively expanding its exploration operations. In 2005, the exploration group has acquired extensive seismic data, including a mega-3D seismic survey covering more than 1000 sq.Km area in and around our Gambat and Latif blocks. Besides these activities carried out in OMV Pakistan’s core area, OMV is pursuing new projects in other parts of Pakistan.

As a Multinational company, OMV is very conscious of its adherence to its outlined policies, standards and most importantly, the local laws. Our Health, Safety and Environmental standards are parallel to the highest international level and second to none in the local perspective. OMV has strong commitment to reduce emissions to the environment. To achieve the same an “Emission Reduction” project has been initiated for Kadanwari Plant. For Sawan plant, preliminary study is being initiated.

Our Community Development Program (CDP) aims for sustainable developments that can contribute to a better overall quality of life for everyone in OMV’s concession areas. The program focuses on education, health, water and livelihood activities which are based on the need assessments of the people living in the areas of OMV’s operations. In addition of creating job opportunity for the locals, OMV is involved in various skills training based capacity building programs, contributions and community development programs. The company has funded schools for education, initiated dispensaries and health centers, addressed the problem of clean drinking water and arranged transport service for selected areas while ensuring the maximum involvement and ownership of the local community so that they can become self-reliant in these aspects.
