Fleet Management in Saudi Arabia and Bahrain


In 2004, South Rub Al-Khali Company Limited (SRAK), a Saudi Arabian joint venture between Saudi Aramco, Shell and Total, required fleet management service in Saudi Arabia and Bahrain. This was in response to terrorist attacks in the Eastern Province.


Initially, working with support from our sister company Olive Group, we were required to deploy a close protection team, responsible for implementing a secure work environment within the Al Khobar area and producing policies and procedure to protect all personnel and assets. However, this role changed over the nine-year contract to include security risk assessments, ground recces, field security reviews, fleet management, control room supervision, report writing and being the custodian of the security and crisis manuals. The project included:

  • Security-related advice within KSA and effects on operational and logistical deployments country-wide
  • Identify and evaluate the threat and consequent risk to Company personnel, assets and operations
  • Security Forces (SF) procedural advice during and after a terrorist incident/threat
  • Prepare and regularly update Security and Crisis manuals, including policies, plans and Standing Operational Procedures (SOPs)
  • Conduct Crisis Management, and security training for all senior managers
  • Control all vehicle fleet movements and asset tracking of personnel and equipment within KSA and Bahrain
  • Monthly site security reviews of all SRAK operational areas reporting back all findings and recommendations
  • Briefings on terrorist-related incidents and counter measures concerning the oil and gas industry
  • Security risk assessments on hotels and other accommodation required for any staff deployments in remote areas or family residences within KSA and Bahrain
  • Responsible for running the SRAK control room and its staff
