  • Oman’s proven oil reserves are only 2 percent of Saudi Arabia’s
  • Geology has not been as kind to Oman as to its neighbors
  • To offset these disadvantages, Oman has embraced new oil and gas technologies and offers good terms to investors

This is hardly surprising given that its proven oil and gas reserves are a tiny fraction of those of its peers.
