About CCED

CCED acquired Blocks 3 & 4 in Oman in 2007. Over the previous 40 years several oil companies had explored the blocks with little success, however CCED brought a refined geological perspective and explored different opportunities. Soon, the company discovered two separate reservoirs. CCED has made a substantial investment to transform exploration success into a value generating development in a remarkably short time, while continuing to explore and appraise additional opportunities within the Blocks.

We strive for excellence in everything we do and we are proud of the technical capabilities that have allowed us to grow quickly and organically into such a valuable contributor to the economy of Oman. Walter Simpson - Managing Director
