Outward Bound Oman

Sunday, 18 January 2015 Vale, HSBC Bank Oman and Daleel Petroleum recreate historic journey from Duqm to Fahud

Teams of staff representing the emerging talent from three of the leading companies in Oman are currently undertaking a major challenge across the heart of the nation, recreating a journey famous in the history of Oman that took place in 1953. Leaving Duqm, the teams are hauling a 4 wheeled cart loaded with their emergency supplies, towards the place where oil was first discovered in Oman, which is Fahud. To date the teams have experienced sandstorms, single digit temperatures at dawn, and some painful blisters .... but all are learning a great deal that will help them perform better individually and collectively when they return to work later this month. Our congratulations to everyone.
