About the trade show
Muscat has been chosen to host the AAPG/EAGE/SPE Shale Gas Workshop. The workshop will be held on 15-17 October 2012 in Muscat, Oman at the Al Bustan Palace.
Situated in the south-eastern quarter of the Arabian Peninsula, the Sultanate of Oman is bordered by the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia to the west, Yemen to the south-west and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) to the north-west.
Mountain ranges (15% of the land) and a narrow strip of coastal plains break up a topography that is predominantly made up of valleys and desert. Oman’s coastline, which is about 1,700km long, extends to the Gulf of Oman and the Arabian Sea as well as the Indian Ocean.
The country is divided into eight administrative regions: three governorates (Muscat, Dhofar and Musandam) and five regions (A’ Dakhliyah, A’ Dhahirah, Al Batinah, Al Wusta and A’ Sharqiyah).
Since the late eighteenth century Muscat has been the uncontested capital of Oman. Today, under the wise leadership of His Majesty Sultan Qaboos bin Said, Greater Muscat has improved beyond recognition, but has never lost its pride in its heritage and culture. The capital area is a prime example of intelligent and aesthetic development, amalgamating modernity with tradition. Modern Muscat is home to a range of luxury hotels, upmarket restaurants and a multitude of service companies.
