Oman LNG gets new CEO

State-owned producer Oman LNG has named a new chief executive officer after Harib Al Kitani decided to step down from the CEO role in preparation for his retirement.

Al Kitani assumed the position of president and CEO of Oman LNG in August 2012 but he previously worked as head of Qalhat LNG, now part of the producer as well. He joined Oman LNG in 1995 as deputy marketing manager.

“With a long successful journey of 4 decades in the industry, Al Kitani’s experience has contributed tremendously in shaping Oman LNG as a reliable and trusted supplier of LNG,” the firm said in a statement.

Moreover, Hamed Al Naamany will take over as the new chief of Oman LNG.

“Al Naamany comes with a vast experience of over 20 years in the industry leading critical LNG projects in Europe and USA,” Oman LNG said.

The producer operates three LNG trains in Qalhat, near Sur with a total capacity of 10.4 million tonnes per year sourcing gas from the central Oman gas field complex.

In addition, the government of Oman holds 51% in Oman LNG while energy giant Shell has a 30% stake.

Other shareholders include Total (5.54%), Korea LNG (5%), Partex (2%), Mitsubishi (2.77%), Mitsui (2.77%) and Itochu (0.92%).
