The hydrological setting and groundwater quality of Musandam Peninsula was studied to investigate the influence of geological structures on the groundwater accumulation and groundwater salinity. Five sets of modified morphometric maps were used to reduce errors and carry out the geological structures. The modification was modified by applying mean filter to the Digital Elevation Model (DEM) then applying Soble filter with 10% threshold and equalization enhancement. D8 and algorithms were used to reveal the drainage basins and drainage networks of the entire area. The algorithm determines into which neighbouring pixel any water in a central pixel will flow naturally. Flow direction in a DEM is calculated for every central pixel of input blocks of a 3 × 3 window, all the time comparing the value of the central pixel in the window with the value of its eight neighbours. The spatial association between geological structures and drainage networks was studied using 2D graph and rose diagrams. Flood basin model was applied to simulate the Arabian Gulf water intrusion into the coastal aquifer. The concentrations of solutes in groundwater samples collected from Wadi Al Bih well field and well locations were correlated with the geological structure trends and intersections. The results of the study reveal that the drainage basins, drainage network and groundwater quality are structurally controlled by subsurface geological structure displacements.
MGP and MPC are part of the Oman Oil Company Exploration and Production LLC (OOCEP), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Oman Oil Company (OOC) and Oman Gas Company SAOC (OGC). The two projects, considered milestones in the nation’s Renaissance march, will play a prime role in delivering sustainable energy to the Governorate of Musandam and meet its current and future demand for power. MPC is set up by a consortium comprising OOC (70 per cent stake) and LG International Corporation (30 per cent stake). The power plant uses natural gas as its primary fuel, with light fuel oil as a back-up to ensure uninterrupted power.
It can operate in extreme conditions, including high humidity and temperatures of up to 50 degrees Celsius. MPC has signed a Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) with Oman Power and Water Procurement Company (OPWP), under which OPWP will purchase electricity produced by the plant for 15 years. MPC is an affiliate of Oman Gas Company. The electricity output will be transmitted to the existing medium voltage grid through a new 132KV transmission line being built by the Rural Areas Electricity Company SAOC. The plant’s 120MW net output capacity will support demand growth in Musandam. MGP is established by OOCEP, OOC’s auxiliary firm which is responsible for managing investments in exploration and production sector. The project included the construction of sub-sea pipelines, oil and gas storage depots and export platforms.
The plant’s production capacity is estimated at 45 million cubic feet of gas, 20,000 barrels of exportable condensates a day and 80 tonnes of liquefied petroleum gas each day. “The opening of these two facilities is an important energy boost for sustainable development of Musandam,” said HH Sayyid Mansoor. “I am delighted to witness this important moment that reflects rapid development of the Sultanate and would like to extend my congratulations to the peopleof Musandam and Oman Oil Company for this accomplishment,” he added. The feed gas required for the power plant comes from the adjoining Musandam Gas Processing Plant, a facility owned and operated by OOCEP.
The gas plant processes well fluids from the prevailing West Bukha field located close to Omani waters. Well fluids are transported from the offshore platform to MGP through a new sub-sea pipeline. A part of the natural gas output from the plant is channelled to MPC under a Sale and Purchase Agreement with Ministry of Oil and Gas, whilst the excess gas will be exported. OOCEP is currently focusing on upstream investments locally as well as internationally. Given the potential for growth, the company continues to search for opportunities that contribute towards value creation. Currently operating three blocks in Oman namely, 60, 42 and 48 and being active in a number of joint ventures, OOCEP has positioned itself strategically to potentially magnify its responsibility in Oman’s oil and gas ecosystem. The event was attended by a large gathering comprising their Highnesses, ministerial representatives and other delegates.

youtube.comIT TAKES SOMETHING special for us to get up and drive a considerable distance for a meal in January. Actually, it is usually too much effort for anything this month. Some may be trying out Veganuary for the first time, for us, we're practicing our usual Janu-solitary: hunkering-down for four weeks trying to live up to our ambitious New Year 's fitness resolutions. However, when the opportunity to visit Six Senses Zighy Bay up the road in Musandam arises, even the most ardent hermits would have trouble resisting. And so it came to pass; one Thursday evening the car was loaded and the journey began.
What we thought would be an arduous yet visually mundane motorway trip quickly manifested, once across the little border, into an Indiana Jones mountain rush. Using our trusty Waze app (Google Maps doesn't work there), we went from single lane beach road, to gravel track, to rally course in a matter of minutes. And fewer than half an hour from the border we arrived at the property's Jurassic Park entrance gates. From there a hotel 4×4 took us over the steepest pass and descended into the resort. For those unfamiliar with the Six Senses getaway, it is essentially an eco-village set on the Oman enclave's pristine shores, cocooned by picturesque desert crags.youtube.com If you're not taking up residence in one of the most beautifully appointed chalets with its own private pool, relaxing in the spa, scuba diving or parasailing, you will most likely be eating. Sense on the Edge is the destination's signature dining spot, perched on top of a hill with a terrace overlooking the bay. At sunset it is stunning. Like no other restaurant perhaps in the entire region, the views truly are worth the journey alone. Sitting at one of the tables, perhaps a result of the virtual ambient silence, a wave of relaxation soon enveloped.youtube.com Then the food arrived.
