Oman to Seek Construction Bids for Sohar Refinery, Observer Says

April 24 (Bloomberg) -- Oman Oil Refineries & Petroleum Industries Co. plans to seek bids this year for engineering, procurement and construction work to expand the Persian Gulf state’s biggest processing plant, the Oman Observer reported.

The project will increase capacity at the 116,400 barrel-a-day Sohar refinery by about 60,000 barrels, with output to be exported and also sold locally, the newspaper said, citing Chief Executive Officer Musab al-Mahrouqi.

Construction is to start next year and be completed in the first half of 2016, according to the report today. The state-run company will announce a shortlist of prequalified contractors within a month, it said. Oman is the largest non-OPEC oil producer in the Middle East.
