When words like ‘headquarters’ and ‘oil’ appear in the same sentence, it suggests a vision of a 1930s skyscraper.

If so, our HQ therefore will come as something of a surprise. It has a contemporary, bright, open design which encourages everyone to talk and interact. Aside from the meeting rooms (and even they are glass), you don’t see many enclosed spaces here. Not even the CEO gets a separate office.

Most of the key functions are based at HQ: HSE, Technical, HR, Sales & Marketing, Finance and Business Development.

Our HQ says a lot about us: it’s open and friendly, lean and straightforward, and refreshingly free of layers and barriers.
