Oman continues its efforts to achieve zero carbon neutrality by 2050

Muscat: His Excellency Engineer Salem bin Nasser Al Aufi, Minister of Energy and Minerals, confirmed that the Sultanate of Oman is moving forward at a steady pace to reach the production of no less than 30 percent of electrical energy or consumption of electrical energy from renewable energy by the year 2030.

His Excellency added in a statement to the Oman News Agency that the oil and gas sectors are currently working to stop the routine burning process, while some industrial regions and cities are seeking to find an environmentally friendly energy alternative. This gives local products more competitiveness in global markets.

His Excellency indicated that studies are being conducted on alternative energy, its cost, and the changes that factories need to keep pace with this modern technology, explaining that the most prominent sectors that produce carbon emissions at a rate of about 95 percent are industry, electricity production, oil and gas, transportation, and others.

Several projects have been announced in the electric energy sector, including: two station projects.

“Manah 1” and “Manah 2” stations, and preparations for “Ibri 3” station, in addition to the announcement of 5 new stations for producing electricity with wind energy, which are: “Dhofar 2” station, Sadah station, Duqm station, Mahout station, and Jaalan Bani Bu Ali station.
