Oil and Gas Development Company Limited
Oil & Gas Training Institute
Oil and Gas Development Corporation was established in 1961 as a statutory Corporation under the Government of Pakistan and was given financial and administrative autonomy during the 7th Five Year Plan (1988-1993). It has been incorporated as a Public Limited Company from 23rd October, 1997 and is now known as Oil & Gas Development Company Limited (OGDCL).
Recognizing the fact that, only through the acquisition of state-of-the-art petroleum technology, OGDCL would be able to fulfill its mandate of achieving self-sufficiency in Oil & Gas for Pakistan; the Oil & Gas Training Institute (OGTI) was established at Islamabad in 1979. In 1986 the OGTI was relocated in I-9 Sector of Islamabad in a newly constructed four-storey building. In January 2013, OGDCL Board of Directors approved transformation of OGTI to a degree awarding Institute.
