Oman maintains crude supply post Saudi Aramco attacks: minister
Oman has not changed its oil production and supply policy in the wake of recent attacks at Saudi Aramco facilities, but it is concerned about escalating tensions in the Middle East, the country's oil and gas minister Mohammed Al-Rumhi told S&P Global Platts.
"We need to find a way of steady supply of energy in respective of geopolitical challenges that we are facing," Al-Rumhi said in an interview on the sidelines of the hydrogen energy ministerial meeting in Tokyo.
"It is a concern for any disruption [and] whether Asian refinery will shy away I hope not," he added.
Oman is currently pumping around 900,000 barrels per day (b/d) of crude, a level it has agreed under the OPEC and non-OPEC production cut accord, Al-Rumhi mentioned.
"Our capacity is very limited so we are producing as per agreement with the OPEC+," he noted.
