In 1997, two brothers, the late Abdirizak Ali Hassan and Abdinasir Ali Hassan, the current chairman, created a company called HASS.

Today, a Board of Directors oversees all investments and operations in the company.

When a business like HASS wants to partner up with another company, the agreement is simple: a shared commitment to delivering value. That is exactly what we found in our current partner, OQ Trading Limited, a company owned by the Sultanate of Oman. Together, we sustain growth and provide a stronger foundation for both our businesses. This partnership links Hass Petroleum’s strong downstream opportunities to OQ Trading Limited's petroleum trading and upstream capabilities and hence, provides strong synergies geared towards optimal growth.
