Occidental Oman signs two multi-year con­tracts

Muscat Daily - - NATION -

Muscat - Occidental Oman signed two new multi-year con­tracts with Gulf Tri­an­gle In­dus­tries & Ser­vices and Muscat Na­tional Petro­chem­i­cals & Sup­plies, as part of its in-coun­try value (ICV) strat­egy to sup­port lo­cally man­u­fac­tured ma­te­ri­als and max­imise ex­pen­di­ture on goods and ser­vices made in Oman.

Both com­pa­nies will sup­ply Occidental Oman with dolomitic lime for Occidental Oman’s Mukhaizna field op­er­a­tions, ac­cord­ing to a press re­lease.

The sign­ing cer­e­mony was held at Occidental Oman’s head­quar­ters in Muscat.

The agree­ment was signed by Stephen Kelly, pres­i­dent and gen­eral man­ager of Occidental

Oman; You­nis al Amri, chief ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cer of Gulf Tri­an­gle In­dus­tries & Ser­vices; and Ab­dul Hamid al Shan­fari, CEO of Muscat Na­tional Petro­chem­i­cals & Sup­plies. Ab­dulka­rim al Ghas­sani, vice pres­i­dent for sup­ply chain, and other se­nior ex­ec­u­tives of Occidental Oman were also pre­sent at the event.

“The con­tracts reaf­firm our wide-rang­ing com­mit­ment to en­hance the col­lab­o­ra­tive ef­forts of the oil and gas in­dus­try to ef­fi­ciently de­velop a com­pet­i­tive Omani sup­ply chain. We be­lieve that this will in­crease in­vest­ment in the coun­try and sup­port di­ver­si­fi­ca­tion of its econ­omy. We look for­ward to new col­lab­o­ra­tive op­por­tu­ni­ties with lo­cal man­u­fac­tur­ers,” said Kelly.

“We highly ap­pre­ci­ate the trust that Occidental Oman has placed on us by award­ing this con­tract, and look for­ward to grow our op­er­a­tions to pro­duce dolomitic lime, and to pro­vide prod­ucts of the high­est stan­dards,” said Amri.

“We are ex­cited by the op­por­tu­ni­ties this award will pro­vide, as this con­tract will help us seize the op­por­tu­nity to grow fur­ther with our pro­duc­tion. We feel con­fi­dent that to­gether we will fa­cil­i­tate and serve in­dus­try de­mands,” said Shan­fari.

This agree­ment sign­ing makes con­crete the ef­forts ex­erted by Occidental Oman to con­trib­ute to the Omani gov­ern­ment’s ICV strat­egy. Occidental Oman en­deav­ors to sup­port eco­nomic de­vel­op­ment in the coun­try un­der the um­brella of strate­gic part­ner­ships and con­tin­u­ous col­lab­o­ra­tion with key stake­hold­ers.
