Oil and Gas Exhibition Centre

The Centre was opened in November 1979. After extensive   remodeling, it was re-opened in November 1995 as a Gift to the Nation to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the reign of His Majesty Sultan Qaboos bin Said.

​The six permanent displays are designed to explain how crude oil and natural gas are formed underground from layers of organic matter deposited in oceans and lakes millions of years ago as well as how they are then found, brought to the surface, delivered to processing facilities and how the end products are ultimately used. The displays have been designed so that visitors can interact with them by means of computers, working models and videos. Each display has a theme and they are ordered chronologically starting with the origin followed by the quest, discovery, production, transport and products.


Visitors also receive a fascinating insight into the role that technology plays in the oil and gas industry and are given a glimpse into the future of the sector.
