The key national event, hosted under the Ministry of Energy and Minerals, is scheduled to be held from 12 to 16 March 2023 at the Oman Convention and Exhibition Center (OCEC).

Representing Oman Shell at the event will be Mr Walid Hadi, Country Chairman and Senior Vice President and Ms Malak Al Shaibani, General Manager, External Relations and ICV.
Through its dedicated booth, Oman Shell will share its inspiring journey toward driving sustainability while highlighting the progress it has made in contributing to carbon neutrality by developing green hydrogen in Oman through its Green Hydrogen for Mobility project. The company will also showcase the initiatives that were undertaken to empower the youth under its Shell Nawafidh and Shell NXplorers programmes. To honour the second batch of Nawafidh students and applaud their relentless dedication, Oman Shell will host a graduation ceremony as part of OSW.
Commenting on Oman Shell’s participation in OSW, Ms Al Shaibani said, “OSW is set to take place at an incredibly critical time as Oman has made significant progress in its energy transition agenda. An event of such scale further reaffirms the country’s unfaltering commitment to attaining net zero emissions and shifting to a green, circular economy. With hydrogen being identified and promoted as a green fuel, ESG mandates becoming a mainstay across every sector and the establishment of Oman Sustainability Center, the nation is uniquely positioned to set new benchmarks and pioneer innovative efforts in the realm of sustainability.”
She added saying, “At Oman Shell, the values of sustainability are embedded into our DNA and are integrated into everything we do. We are indeed delighted to be a critical part of OSW and aim to showcase our key initiatives and exchange knowledge with our partners and other experts in the field. Through our projects, we also seek to inspire the larger community and encourage them to take concerted action. It is quintessential to acknowledge that embracing and advocating sustainability is the responsibility of every individual.”
