Construction to start on gas-fired power plant in Oman

Set to generate 120MW of electricity in the remote exclave and scheduled for completion by the end of 2012, the site is adjunct to Musandam Gas Plant, an integrated oil and gas processing facility also under construction.

According to Oman's Ministry of Information, the state-owned Oman Oil Company was given a one-off mandate by the Omani authorities to develop the gas-fired power scheme in order to speed up the construction time of the project so it can be delivered at a similar time as the Musandam Gas Plant project.

The ministry also said the fast-track permits were approved due to the modest size of the power project and its remote location within the governorate, which suffers from poor infrastructure.

Oman Oil Company Exploration and Development (OOCEP), which is responsible for developing the adjacent Musandam Gas Plant, has said it will invest close to US$600 million in the facility, which will have the capacity to treat 45 million standard cubic feet per day of gas and 20,000 barrels per day of crude oil.

Both facilities will be situated in Tibat on Musandam’s western coast.
