Gas Production and Consumption Rise Rapidly

The Sultanate of Oman has emerged as a major international exporter and consumer of natural gas. Extensive gas exploration is in progress in many parts of the country, while production is continuously posting unprecedented growth. Consider the following:

The Sultanate's natural gas production soared by 28.2 percent during the first half of 2006, compared to the same period last year.
Total gas production reached 498,957 million cubic feet from January to June 2006.
Oman currently exports up to 9 million tons of LNG to many countries including South Korea and Japan.
Gas supplies from Petroleum Development Oman rose to over 43 million cubic meters per day in 2005.

With the establishment of major industrial areas such as the Salalah Free Zone and Sohar Industrial Port, Omani gas demand and consumption will increase considerably in coming years. There are strong prospects for growth in this area: OGWA 2010 will provide the perfect opportunity to present products, services, and equipment for gas-based industries.
