BIC Overview

The Basra Industrial Community (BIC) is a 17,400 square meter camp and office complex situated within the North Rumaila Oil Field in Southern Iraq; approximately 65 kilometers from Basra International Airport. BIC is strategically located in what we have termed “Oilfield Alley” to directly support all ongoing IOC ground operations within Southern Iraq. The camp shares the same area as numerous companies including: Gulf Pearl, Unaoil, Baker Hughes, Schlumberger, Lukoil and Saipem. Due to the close proximity to major highways, we are geographically positioned to support oil field operations.

The facility provides a single source solution to support your Iraq operations. We strive to provide the best accommodations and services available. We offer quality housing, catering, security, medical and support services. BIC has the capabilities to deliver a comprehensive range of services to a broad range of clients, from small, private companies to large multi-nationals. By outsourcing these services to us, our clients are free to focus on their core business. Our facility offers an affordable solution that is tailored to the specific requirements of our guests.

Our intention is to ensure for the comfort and safety of our clients by providing quality service from start to finish. BIC maintains the best security, housing, meals, recreation and workspace allowing our guests to focus more on their core business and less on life support.

BIC recognizes that our clients are looking to ensure the highest quality service to efficiently support their operations while meeting the highest health, safety and environmental standards. We have the capability to achieve these goals and deliver unparalleled food and support services consistently, daily and, above all, safely.
