In 2001, due to the deteriorating internal security situation of the country and terrorist activities, the need for establishing the Security Department in PPL was considered and approved. The department was established in 2004 and rapidly developed into an effective setup ensuring and assisting smooth exploration and production operations. For provision of security, the department works closely with civil administration and law enforcement agencies such as Frontier Corps Balochistan, provincial police department, Pakistan Rangers Sindh, Pakistan Armed Forces and private security companies. The department also aims to meeting the company’s security requirements while reducing security cost through effective negotiations and management.
