  • Oman LNG eyes expansion of Qalhat plant capacity to 12mln tonnes per year
Buoyed by a slew of recent commitments to offtake its LNG output, Oman LNG plans to expand its gas liquefaction capacity through the Qalhat complex — a move that also bodes well for its efforts to secure an extension of its concession to operate beyond its current mandate expiring in 2024. The uptick will further strengthen the majority government-owned company’s positioning in a global energy market still roiled by the effects of a gas supply crisis triggered by the Russian-Ukrainian conflict, according to Oman LNG CEO Hamad al Numani. Next in its sights is a capacity ramp-up to 12 million tpy of production — a goal Oman LNG seeks to achieve within a “year or two”, alongside its efforts to secure a government mandate to operate well into the foreseeable future.
