Our brand story and purpose
The stability of the industry is therefore not only critical to its stakeholders, but also the entire country. In order to remain sustainable, the industry has to address various challenges in terms of sustainability, ownership and transformation. Having been through these challenges ourselves and having developed a very clear understanding of the pressures that face those working in the energy industry, PetroCONNECT was founded with the vision of playing a proactive role in helping all players in the industry to join forces and become empowered, so that collectively we may be part of the industry-wide solutions that are required of us all at this time. PetroCONNECT was established to address these significant goals and to lead the industry into a prosperous future.
