The Managing Director of the state owned Oman Petroleum Development Company (PDO) Raoul Restucci announced yesterday the discovery of a large gas reservoir with recoverable amounts estimated at more than 4 trillion cubic feet (TCF) and 112 million barrels of condensate.

The announcement came during the Omani Ministry of Oil and Gas annual conference.

Restucci said the discovery will support the Sultanate’s economic growth and help meet the growing demand for gas from consumers for residential, commercial and industrial purposes.
