OPEC Secretary General congratulates Minister Al-Rumhy on the completion of his tenure

Vienna, Austria, 17 June 2022--OPEC Secretary General, HE Mohammad Sanusi Barkindo, congratulated HE Dr Mohammed Bin Hamad Al-Rumhy on completing his tenure as Minister of Energy and Minerals of the Sultanate of Oman.

In a letter addressed to the Minister, the Secretary General said: “You are a veteran and icon of the oil and gas industry and have served your country with distinction over the years.”

“Longevity is one of those most valuable of attributes in public service. To serve as Minister since 1997, for 25 years, is an incredible feat and speaks volumes of the extraordinary array of natural gifts you possess,” Barkindo added.

Oman is a participant of the landmark Declaration of Cooperation between OPEC and non-OPEC oil-producing countries, which was signed in December 2016 in the interest of sustainable stability in the global oil market.
