Managing Director-PMHBL

As we close out 2017 and start 2018, it is appropriate for me to reflect upon our accomplishments and growth. We ended 2017 better than ever before with record thruput of 3.50MMT and I would like to take a moment and thank you who have made 2017 another tremendous year for us. I am proud of the work you have put in however, we must remember that operational excellence is imperative for each one of us and we all must continue to focus on delivering the best.

During 2017, we completed Intelligent Pigging for the first time which shows robustness of our pipeline infrastructure. As an oil installation, safety is paramount which was reaffirmed during first safety audit by PESO as well as by OISD.

Quality, environment and sustainability has been at the core of our operations philosophy and during the year 2017, we got certified under EnMS 5001:2011 apart from continuation of ISO 9001, 14001 & 18001 in line with our commitment.

PMHBL has been investing heavily in for technology upgradation. A lot of upgradation works were carried out in 2017 such as PLC, CCTV, Telecom, Vibration & Temperature monitoring system etc. We also started power trading through IEX to significantly reduce our power cost. Year 2018 will be no exception as a number of projects are lined up viz., Solar Power plants, expansion projects, system upgradation such as SCADA, STS, videoconferencing, Mass flow meters, Displacement water tanks, DBBV etc. which I am sure will receive your unequivocal attention and support.

Year 2018 will mark 20 years of incorporation of PMHBL during which we have achieved many a milestones but a lot needs to be achieved. With CDR successfully closed, we’ve just begun to realize our full potential and are moving forward to transform our company and in this endeavour, extension of our pipeline network to newer areas, as you all are aware, will be our first step.

While the future looks promising, we should keep in perspective the recent downturn in the thruput which will be testing and we should be geared up to face them.
