Furthermore, that the plant will produce industrial gasses for the local markets as well as for export to neighboring countries in the first phase.

In the second phase, the delegation revealed that it would also set up another plant that would manufacture Aerosol Propellant Gas (APG). The plant would help meet the local demand for APG, consequently reducing the import of the gas.

In the final phase, the company said it would introduce refrigerant gasses, and ADNOC lubes in the country.

The investment has been termed as a major breakthrough as it would help attract precious FDI into the country said, Secretary BOI.
