The company will provide technical expertise in designing, managing and executing complex projects and building capacity through knowledge transfer.

Dr Khalid Al Jahwari, Petrofac’s country manager – Oman, said that green hydrogen will help accelerate the energy transition in the country via the decarbonisation of many industries.
