Rumaila is a complex operation with 12 integrated departments, and a multitude of job roles, ranging from geological scientists to drilling engineers, procurement experts and medical practitioners.

Rumaila is overwhelmingly an Iraqi operation, with 6,500 members of the workforce seconded from BOC and local personnel recruited via agencies.
