May 2018

Oman is planning to invite bids this month for the construction of an undersea natural gas pipeline between Sohar and its neighbour Iran, said a report citing the sultanate’s oil minister.

 Mohammed bin Hamad Al Rumhi told Thomson Reuters Projects that work related to seabed surveys, design of the pipeline and its accessories and the compressor stations has been completed.

The project will supply Iranian gas to the sultanate by the end of June, reported IRNA citing Oil Minister Bijan Namdar Zanganeh.

 “The deal will be finalised in two stages, the first of which is planned to be concluded by the end of May and the second part is going to be signed by the end of June,” Zanganeh was quoted as saying by IRNA.
