Omanoil have been recognized by STP Malaysia, a leading supplier of underground fuel tanks, for their outstanding care and respect for the environment.

Following a visit to the Sultanate by Bob Bow, Managing Director of STP Malaysia, Omanoil have been recognized as pioneers in the use of fibre-glass technology for underground petroleum storage tanks in the Sultanate of Oman.

Adhering to global safety and environmental standards is a given.
