Chairman message

Our Group is the realization of one man’s dream, to create a company dedicated to the development of an indigenous energy company that could compete on the world stage. Mr. Zaheer Uddin believed in people. His belief was that if you train your people to work hard, to always hold the ethical and moral high ground, then you cannot but succeed.

Today we strive to adhere to the same basic principles that he enunciated. We have become a recognized name in the oil and gas industry and we will continue to grow through development and diversification.

Our diversification strategy has been both geographic and structural. Geographically, we have expanded our operations to include the Kingdom of Morocco, the first Pakistani E&P Company to do so. Our structural diversification strategy has included branching out into the media industry where we now hold the only license for satellite based DTH distribution in Pakistan.
