Oman Helps Advance Gas Research in 2020

The Sultanate of Oman has been selected to host the International Gas Union’s 16th International Gas Research Conference (IGRC) in 2020 in collaboration with Oman LNG and the Oman Convention & Exhibition Centre (OCEC). The triennial event highlights the research, development and innovation aspects of the ever-growing gas industry. Harib Al Kitani, CEO of Oman LNG LLC said, “IGRC 2020 will bring over 1000 senior leaders, partners and experts in the gas industry together to share invaluable insights into the role of natural gas today and in the future.”

The Sultanate of Oman is recognised as a global leader in enhanced recovery technologies. This is largely thanks to the country’s focus on research and the key reason behind Oman’s application to host IGRC 2020 was to further Oman’s ambition of becoming a knowledge economy and to transform the commodity reliant country into one that helps shape the world’s thinking.
