Janus Global Operations (JGO) has been selected by an integrated oil and gas multinational corporation based in Malaysia, to provide security and risk management services for the company’s operations in central Iraq.
Some 600 JGO U.S. and foreign national employees will be responsible, during the two-year contract, for security and risk management for the Malaysian International Oil Company’s (IOC) oil exploration and development program in central Iraq, to include the company’s base camp, facilities, and also mobile security for company personnel.
“We’re proud that the Malaysian IOC has selected JGO for this security responsibility,” said Matt Kaye, JGO’s chief executive officer. “JGO has worked in Iraq with commercial and government clients for more than 13 years on demining and unexploded remnants of war clearance, munitions management, security and risk management, and other tasks critical to clients’ operations.”
The Malaysian IOC has a 10-year relationship with JGO, Kaye added.
“We’ve worked hard to keep and earn the company’s trust,” Kaye said. “Its investment in these projects is significant, and the environment of central Iraq can, at times, be quite challenging. We’re appreciative of the company’s confidence in JGO.”
