NEWS, Business, Airport development projects, Contract win, Oman

Galfar Engineering has announced that it has won a contract to upgrade Mukhaizna Airfield from oil & gas firm Occidental Petroleum.

The company said that it received notice of award of the $17.9m deal (OR: 6.89m) last Thursday from subsidiary Occidental Mukhaizna LLC, which operates the airfield in the Al Wusta Region.

Galfar said that it expects "reasonable income" from the project. The win is the fourth announced by Muscat-based Galfar within the past two weeks, following a $26.8m award for a new grid station at Ghala and cabling in Muscat and a $24.7m for another substation - both from Oman Electricity Transmission Company.

It also won a $28.3m contract to build a fishing harbour at Barka in Al Batinah province from the Ministry of Agriculture & Fisheries.

Last month, the firm said some major new contract wins had taken its forward order book to more than $1.82bn.
