Oman plans big increase in natural gas output

Mar 03, 2014 12:00 AM

Oman expects a significant increase in its natural gas output over the next five years but little improvement in oil production, its undersecretary for oil and gas said.

Oman aims to raise gas output to an average of 120 million cubic metres per day (mcm/d) over the five-year period from 2014 through 2018, Salim Al Aufi told journalists on Monday, a gain of 17.65 percent over 2013.

In 2013, gas production rose to an average of 102 mcm/d, up 3.7 percent from the previous year.

Oman's modest gas exports have been constrained over the last few years as it has struggled to raise production quickly enough to keep pace with its own demand growth.
