Operations are expected to fully commence in Q3 of 2016, with National Gas Co. and NCG Energy currently recruiting additional sales staff and developing infrastructure facilities, including warehouses and delivery vehicles, as part of the agreement.


General Manager of National Gas Company SAOG, Mr Nalin Chandna, said: “Since we signed the agreement in September 2015, we have been working together to put all the necessary infrastructure in place, in order to meet our expected demand levels when operations begin. In this time we have seen similarities in the way we both work and believe our partnership can only be fruitful for all concerned. IPOL is a quality product which suits the market in UAE and Oman and we are delighted to be able to distribute the product there.”
