Oman invites firms to bid for refinery work
Muscat, October 1, 2009
Oman has invited international companies to bid for a contract to build a water treatment plant for its 116,000 barrels per day refinery, a government official said on Thursday.
'The bids are for the sea water treatment plant, including the associated civil works for the Sohar Refinery,' a finance ministry project official told Reuters.
The deadline for the submission of the bids is November 16, he said.
In August, Oman issued tenders for work at the refinery that included the replacement of pipelines, a heat exchanger and installation of a catalyst.
