Report summary

The delivery of first commercial gas from the giant Khazzan field in Oman represents an important milestone for operator BP and partner OOCEP, who delivered the project ahead of schedule and significantly below budget. Gas from Khazzan will also prove important for securing Oman's energy future over the next decade. In the short-term, it presents an opportunity to export record LNG volumes from Oman's historically underutilised LNG plants, whilst also supporting Oman's growth plans. However, longer term, Oman will need to look for additional supply sources.
