Oman 2019 Energy

The oil and gas sector is responsible for much of Oman’s economic growth and government revenue; thus, changes in the industry tend to reflect greatly on the sultanate’s overall development. Although recent years have seen a strategic shift towards economic diversification, activity in the hydrocarbons sector still attracts a large share of domestic and foreign investment, with this pattern likely to continue for some time. While the recent prolonged downturn in global oil and gas prices, coupled with the steady depletion of domestic resources, has given Oman some cause for concern, there are signs that the industry has turned a corner. This chapter contains an interview with Ahmed Saleh Al Jahdhami, CEO, Oman Oil Refineries and Petroleum Industries Company.
