The official inauguration of the production gathering station in the Greater Saqr area in the Wilayat of Shalim and the Hallaniyat Islands represents a new step on the path to the Sultanate of Oman’s goal of reaching carbon neutrality by 2050, as the station operates with a production capacity of about 30,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day and contributes to reducing about 6,600 tons of oil equivalent. carbon dioxide annually.

This is achieved through the project following a policy of not burning gas associated with production, in line with PDO’s commitment to the World Bank’s 2030 initiative to stop routine gas burning, in addition to the fact that the station is equipped with units to extract the gas and reuse it in operational activities.

The project also contributes to generating revenues in the long term by ensuring enhanced production, improving costs, and protecting the environment, in addition to contributing to local added value, as the Omani workforce in the project’s operations represents more than 80 percent so far, and is distributed at various administrative levels.

Spending on small and medium enterprises in providing goods and services amounted to more than two million and 265 thousand Omani riyals, while spending on suppliers registered in the Sultanate of Oman amounted to more than 11 million and 570 thousand Omani riyals.
