Eight years ago Osama Ahmad joined Shell as a graduate Project Engineer. Now he’s part of the team responsible for ensuring the world’s largest natural gas plant runs smoothly.
Osama had always been attracted to Shell. “I wanted to work for a big company that had established processes. Shell is such a mature, established and well-respected company in the industry and I feel that I'm able to contribute to my country just by working for this organisation,” he explained.
He originally joined the refinery section of Pearl GTL where he spent just over a year with the delivery team, learning the fundamentals of project engineering. This was followed by an assignment where he was responsible for the delivery of a number of projects worth around $300 million. He then joined the Accelerated Development Programme. In this programme he executed an exercise to build an organisation that delivers small- and medium-size projects, valued up to $500 million, for Shell in Qatar. That organisation is now 50 engineers strong and has proven a great success.
Since then, he relocated to the Netherlands for three and a half years before settling into his current role as Site Reliability Manager at Pearl GTL.
