BP has had a presence in Oman since 2007 and stands as a major investor within the country. BP is one of the world's pioneers in tight gas production, harnessing technology and experience to develop one of the Middle East's largest unconventional gas resources in the Sultanate's Block 61. BP Oman's overall goal is to create a sustainable legacy that supports Oman's strategic goals for energy security and long-term economic diversification.

Production from Phase 1 of Block 61, Khazzan, started in 2017 (Fig. 1). In October 2020, production from Phase 2, Ghazeer also started (Fig. 2). Combined, Khazzan and Ghazeer produce 1.5 billion cubic ft of gas/d and more than 65,000 bbl/d of associated condensate. With an estimated 10.5 trillion cubic ft of recoverable gas resources, the block has the capacity to deliver approximately 35% of Oman's total gas demand.
