Muscat: As part of expanding gas transportation in the country, Oman Gas Company (OGC) has said that it is adding new capacity to the nation’s critical gas transportation infrastructure to support demand growth at industrial hubs in Suhar, Duqm and Salalah. 

OGC, a subsidiary of Oman Oil and Orpic Group, said it is expanding the 932-kilometre gas pipeline system newly acquired from previous operator Petroleum Development Oman (PDO), to support demand in the Salalah.  

The wholly government-owned utility is “expanding the pipeline, which is connecting Nimr with Salalah and the central gas network from Saih Rawl to Sur to increase the transmission capacity from 64 million standard cubic metres of gas per day (MSCM) to 80 million standard cubic metres of gas per day,” it said in a post on its LinkedIn site.
