Siemens highlighted technology’s ability to reduce production and operations costs within Oman’s oil and gas sector at the Oil & Gas West Asia Exhibition and Conference in Muscat. The company demonstrated how continued efforts within the Sultanate to embrace advanced technologies in the oil and gas industry would be a contributing factor in weathering the current climate of low oil prices.
