GardaWorld leads the way in rig site security solutions in Southern Iraq

October 9, 2018

Protecting your rig site means protecting your business. That’s why when it comes to securing your gas and oil fields, having a security solution in place from a company with local expertise is critical.



Our extensive experience enables us to offer comprehensive rig site security solutions.

GardaWorld has provided security services for the oil, gas and mining sectors in Iraq for more than 20 years. In fact, we are the largest private security provider in Southern Iraq, where in addition to our extensive mobile and static security contracts, we now deliver 12 complete rig site solutions across the Rumaila, Zubair and Exxon concession areas. GardaWorld’s full turnkey solution consists of management, rig security infrastructure (including logistical move of equipment between rig sites), and rig security guards.



Staff are always available to keep your site safe.

A dedicated expatriate manager oversees all of our rig site operations, and our maintenance crews work 24/7, ensuring our infrastructure is always maintained. With more than 3 years’ experience in this specialized field, we are able to adapt and deploy additional resources on short notice from our logistics base in Burjesia, providing a scalable solution that meets the client’s needs throughout the project lifecycle.


Our security guards are trained in fire prevention, first aid, customer service, as well as how to reduce risks in hazardous industrial environments, such as oil fields. This means they can serve clients while keeping oil fields secure. Our high-tech operation centers keep our guards connected and monitored at all times, allowing them to access support and respond to situations quickly.



We also offer training to become an accredited rig site manager.

In conjunction with HABC (Highfield Awarding Body for Compliance), we’ve developed an internationally accredited Level 3 rig site managers’ course. Participants learn about rig site security and defenses, concession security minimum standards, rig site audits and daily checks, conflict management, as well as rig site training plans. The value brought to the clients from fully trained rig site managers ensures the professionalism of the overall security solution provided is consistent with the quality that is synonymous with GardaWorld.



Worldwide security services.

Our expertise extends well beyond Iraq. We work at oil fields, refineries and remote explorations in Kenya, Tanzania, Mali, Afghanistan, Libya, Nigeria, Yemen and Somalia. Wherever we work, we partner with our clients to ensure their businesses, assets and people are protected.
