World Finance: Oman is the oldest independent state in the Arab world. It has a rich history, culture, and economy. But while its agriculture and tourism sectors are still growing, the backbone of the country has been built on its flourishing energy sector.
Oman has a burgeoning natural gas sector. And as the country’s primary exporter of liquefied natural gas, Oman LNG now runs at a 34 million cubic metre capacity per day.
Oman’s exports of liquefied natural gas has often been described as the game-changer to the country’s economy. The company sees its mission as improving the lives of all Omani people. 1.5 percent of Oman LNG’s net income after tax goes into its diverse social investment programmes, benefitting people of all walks of life.
