OOC unit seeks bids for Duqm terminal

February 2016

Duqm Terminal, a unit of Oman Oil Company (OOC), has invited expressions of interests from engineering firms for the construction of topside infrastructure for a liquid storage terminal and dry bulk project at Duqm port in the sultanate, said a report.

It is the logistics provider for the storage and handling of liquid products in the new Port of Duqm on the Wusta coast of the country. The contract, which covers a substantial package of works, represents the Phase Two of the liquid storage terminal and dry bulk facilities project, reported Oman Observer. The project is proposed to be developed along the lee breakwater of the Port of Duqm.

It will serve as the outgo port for Duqm Refinery, an ambitious 230,000 barrels per day capacity greenfield project that is currently under development.

The successful bidder will win a contract to undertake the detailed design, procurement and construction of a package of works that includes, among other things, liquid storage tanks, pipelines and loading facilities, dry bulk handling facilities for pet-coke and sulphur storage, ship loaders and conveyors, buildings, roads infrastructure, and associated utilities, said the report.

Separately, nine international firms are in contention for the marine infrastructure package, representing the Phase One of the project, the report added.
