Yemen: Austrian firm takes a closer look at Shabwa field
Vienna-based integrated oil and gas firm OMV Group has sent a delegation to the Al-Aqla oil field in Shabwa province to assess conditions on the ground. The 18 March visit was a rare event, as international oil companies have largely steered clear of Yemen since the civil war took hold. Oil and minerals minister Aous Al-Awd told the official Yemeni News Agency (Saba) it was “a preliminary step forward for the returning of all oil firms to the government-held regions”.
