TotalEnergies SE signed an agreement with the Ministry of Energy and Minerals of the Sultanate of Oman to establish Marsa Liquefied Natural Gas LLC (Marsa LNG), an integrated company between TotalEnergies (80%) and Oman National Oil Company (20%). Marsa LNG will produce natural gas from Block 10 of Saih Rawl gas field, about 400 km from Muscat, with a view to subsequently develop a low-carbon LNG plant in Sohar, powered by solar electricity, for production of LNG for bunker fuel.


Marsa LNG will sell natural gas from Block 10 to the government of Oman for 18 years or until start-up of the Marsa LNG plant.

Production from Block 10 is expected to reach about 24,000 boe/d in 2023.

Shell Integrated Gas Oman BV is operator in Block 10 (53.45%) with partners Oman National Oil Company (13.36%) and Marsa LNG (33.19%).
