PPL ensures business continuity despite COVID-19 crisis

 Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, when most businesses in Pakistan suffered due to halt in operations, Pakistan Petroleum Limited (PPL), achieved a milestone with nearly zero decline in production from operating assets to provide much-needed energy supplies for the nation.

This was highly appreciated by industry partners and stakeholders. As such, the support from the Board of Directors and Ministry for measures adopted by PPL enabled the company to perform optimally during this difficult time, a press release said.

Despite a series of challenges posed by the pandemic, including 170 employees affected by COVID-19, most of whom have recovered now, besides 6 active cases, the company showed exemplary resilience to ensure business continuity without compromising on health and safety of its employees and contractors.

It is a story of great resolve, dedication and commitment of our staff and senior management to deal with extraordinary circumstances, never seen before. Keeping the momentum for business operations without compromising the health and safety of our staff and contractors was the real challenge. However, over the last five months, we have proven remarkable resilience in all facets of our operations, ensuring business continuity with no decline in our operated exploration and production activities,” highlights CEO PPL Moin Raza Khan. 

This was made possible through the effective use of technology and communications tools with effective teamwork by staff, especially those directly responsible to provide relevant services.
