Iraq ropes in Sicuro for Basra's OOC operations

DUBAI, August 8, 2018

UAE-based Sicuro Group said it has been signed up by the Iraqi government as the exclusive operating partner for Basra's Oil Operations Centre (OOC).

The OOC is the information, incident management and emergency response centre for the Iraqi government's Basra Operations Command (BaOC).

It has been established, collocated and integrated with BaOC at its command headquarters in Basra, in support of all international oil companies operating in the south of the country and is managed by highly experienced international staff.

Sicuro Group is a specialist in delivering communications, information and procurement solutions to those operating in challenging environments throughout the Middle East, Africa and Eurasia. It is a Iraqi CMC (Communications and Media Commission)-licensed tracking, communications and information provider with vast experience in Iraq as the exclusive operating partner.

The Dubai-headquartered group was selected by Benaa Al Basra, which had been tasked with the job of making Basra's OOC operational by the Iraqi Prime Minister's office.

"This new partnership will ensure the required expertise and resources are applied to the centre in order to deliver timely information, civil and military authority liaison and coordination, incident management and emergency response to all international oil companies operating in Southern Iraq," said a company spokesman.

The OOC will be operational from mid-August, delivering enhancements to the Basra Operations Command, he stated.

"An ISO 27001-certified and GDPR compliant company, Sicuro has its headquarters and 24/7 operations room in Dubai, in support of its regional offices, including Baghdad," remarked the spokesman.

"Sicuro's Iraq branch holds Iraqi CMC licencing for its tracking, monitoring and support services. Intelyse, Sicuro's incident, information and analysis service, has dedicated Iraq analysts and has provided in-depth reporting on Iraq since 2012," he added.-TradeArabia News Service
