The article reports that the government of Oman postponed gas-intensive downstream projects due to the lack of gas. According to Nasir Al Jashmi, undersecretary for the Ministry of Oil and Gas, the country will continue to attract exploration and production firms to extract gas and try to secure imports of the cleaner burning fuel. He added that the country's gas imports will help to preserve domestic gas reserves for as long as possible.
