Board of Directors

  • Basil Macki had his early formative years of schooling in the UK. Later, he earned himself a scholarship from Petroleum Development Oman (PDO) to obtain a Master's degree in Mechanical Engineering from the Imperial College of Science, Technology and Medicine, London.

    Graduating from Imperial College in 1996, a young Basil came back to work in PDO as a Mechanical Construction Supervisor where he was positioned in Marmul for over 18 months. This was the beginning of a long association with PDO which he considers his alma mater. It was this experience that influenced Basil to adopt a hands on participative style of management later.

    The quest for knowledge and previous experiences drove him to take on an assignment as Process Engineer with Shell Holland in 1998. During this time, he completed his Master's degree in Business Administration from the reputed Dutch Business School, Nyenrode University.

    Oman beckoned, with Basil joining the family business OOSC as Head of Oilfield Marketing. After four years of successfully managing this portfolio, in 2004 he was appointed Managing Director of OOSC Group in addition to Managing Director of STS. During this period, STS has grown exponentially under his leadership from an employee base of 500 to a strength of over 8,000 permanent employees when in late 2013 when he handed over the reigns of STS to Alex Clark as Chief Executive Officer.

Prior to joining OOSC he worked with an oil & gas EPC in the UAE as CFO primarily to prepare the organization for a public listing and before that with a prominent Abu Dhabi family conglomerate as Group CFO and CEO Investments.

    In professional practice Michael has worked with Deloitte in Saudi Arabia, the UAE and Oman as a director and was a senior specialist in the Deloitte Middle East Energy Practice.
