Muscat: Oman Liquefied Natural Gas Company (Oman LNG) has signed an agreement to develop and modernize its key control systems at its liquefied natural gas factory.
The step aims to provide highly efficient products in line with the highest standards of safety.
Oman LNG initiated this project to develop key control systems after 20 years since inception of its operations in 2000. The aim is to achieve top quality production operations and top credibility at its factory in the Wilayat of Sur.
