Shell Gas & Power Developments (Shell) has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Government of Oman to cover proposed energy development projects in the Sultanate. The agreement covers upstream gas exploration and development, gas-to-liquids (GTL), liquefied natural gas (LNG) and renewable energies.
The MoU sets out an initial mutual understanding between Shell and Oman and serves as a platform for further negotiations on the proposed developments. Under the agreement, Shell is to operate an upstream project with Total and Oman Oil Company (OOC) as partners. It will also operate a GTL project with OOC as a partner.
The proposed investments will help Oman meet its energy needs and growth aspirations and are aligned with Shell’s strategy of building a resilient and relevant portfolio that is positioned for long term success.
