TotalEnergies has started natural gas production from onshore Block 10 in the Sultanate of Oman as well as a formalized an agreement with Oman LNG for a long-term LNG purchase contract.

Gas is now flowing from the Mabrouk North‑East field in the onshore Block 10. TotalEnergies holds a 26.55% interest in Block 10, with OQ holding 20%, and Shell, the operator, holding 53.45%.

Production is expected to reach 500 MMCf/D by mid-2024. The produced gas will supply the Omani gas network, feeding both local industry and LNG export facilities. This production startup follows the signing of the concession agreement in December 2021.

TotalEnergies has also signed an agreement with Oman LNG for the purchase of 0.8 mtpa of LNG over a period of 10 years beginning in 2025.

The new contract will contribute to TotalEnergies’ LNG integrated portfolio and reinforce its flexibility to address both the European and Asian markets.

“These announcements are consistent with the ambition of TotalEnergies to contribute to the energy transition and reinforce its longstanding partnerships with both Oman LNG and the Omani State,” said Patrick Pouyanné, chairman and chief executive of TotalEnergies. “TotalEnergies deploys in Oman its multienergy strategy in oil, gas, and renewables and so participates in the sustainable development of the country’s natural resources.”

TotalEnergies has recently signed 30 MW of solar projects in Oman, including a project to supply Sharqiyah Desalination Co. (17 MW), in a joint venture with Veolia.
