Oman Oil Company, the sultanate's energy investment arm, through its subsidiary has signed a partnership agreement with Thailand-based Gulf Energy Development to develop Duqm independent power and water project.

The agreement was signed by Eng Isam al Zadjali, CEO of Oman Oil, and Sarath Ratanavadi, CEO of Gulf Energy Development, Oman Oil announced in a tweet on Thursday.
