Oman is “almost back to normal” said Oil Minister Mohammed al-Rumhi. This is a day after Cyclone Shaheen hit the country, temporarily disrupting LNG and crude oil loadings. Oman is the Middle East’s largest crude oil producer outside of OPEC, and one of the few LNG exporters in the region along with Qatar. Sohar Port and Freezone resumed marine operations on Oct. 4 after closing as a precaution the day before. There have been no reports of infrastructural damage or injuries.
