Oman LNG's long-standing Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Harib al Kitani has stepped down and Hamed al Numani has taken over as the new CEO, according to the company statement.
A company statement said: “On the behalf of the Board of Directors, staff and contractors, Oman LNG is delighted to extend its sincere thanks and appreciation to Harib Al Kitani who has stepped down from his role as Oman LNG CEO, in preparation for his retirement.
"With a long successful journey of four decades in the industry, Al Kitani’s experience has contributed tremendously in shaping Oman LNG as a reliable and trusted supplier of LNG. We wish him all the best in his retirement and a big thank you for all he has done to drive our success,” the statement said.
A veteran of the sultanate’s gas and LNG industry, Al Kitani remained with Oman LNG from its inception in the late 1990s, holding high-level positions before helming the majority government-owned company as its CEO, said the report.
Al Numani has over 20 years in the industry, leading critical LNG projects in Europe and the US. “Hamed will continue leading Oman LNG in its journey towards being ‘The Best at What We Do’,” the statement added.
