Oman plans Muscat city gas project

30 October 2013

Oman Gas Company expects to start design phase in 2014; completion targeted for 2018

Oman Gas Company (OGC) plans to start the front-end engineering and design (feed) phase on its Muscat city gas project in 2014, according to the group’s chief executive officer (CEO) Yousuf Bin Mohammad Al-Ojaili.

“The project involves supplying most of the areas in Muscat itself,” said Al-Ojaili, speaking at MEED’s Oman Projects Forum in Muscat on 29 October.

The scheme is expected to start up in 2018 and gradually roll out to different zones in Muscat during the following years.

Al-Ojaili said that the project would provide a reliable supply to residential areas, reduce safety concerns from liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) trucking and save LPG for industrial users.
