Muscat, January 18 (QNA) - Shell Oman Integrated Gas Solutions, a subsidiary of Shell International, announced on Wednesday the start of gas production from the Mabrouk field, northeast of Concession 10 in the Sultanate of Oman.

According to the company, the volume of production from this field is expected to reach 500 million cubic feet per day of natural gas by mid-2024.

It indicated that the produced gas will be transferred to the gas network of the Okyo Group to feed local industries and LNG export facilities.

Omani Minister of Energy and Minerals Engineer Salem bin Nasser Al-Awfi emphasized the importance of this achievement, explaining that gas production from the Mabrouk field would enhance the natural gas reserves of the Sultanate of Oman and add value in the energy transition journey, as well as achieve zero neutrality by 2050 and attract foreign investment in this vital sector.

It is worth noting that Shell owns 53.45 percent of the operating stake in Concession area 10, while the OQ Group owns 13.36 percent, and the remaining 33.19 percent belongs to Marsa LNG, which is owned by Total and the OQ Group. (QNA)
