OMV Tunisia, the only oil and gas compagny with local dedicated webiste -

At the exception of OMV, all Tunisia based oil and gas companies are quite comfortable with a simple page or section at their corporate web sites, OMV did make the exception by dedicated a local website with a local domain name ( supporting both French and Arabic, the two popular languages in the country.

The site includes ongoing OMV Tunisia projects plus a job offers section, sustainable development, CSR and the Nawara project of course, it is slightly updated but does contain the most signifiant information about the company.
