The Omani Government has prequalified nine international marine engineering firms to participate in a tender for the construction of a Bulk Liquid Berths Terminal at the Port of Duqm. 

The $1bn contract will see the successful bidder carry out the design, dredging, reclamation and jetty works for the new terminal.

The contract, which encompasses primarily the marine infrastructure facilities, represents Package 1 of the Bulk Liquid Berths Terminal project.  

The Special Economic Zone Authority at Duqm (SEZAD) is overseeing the tendering process.

The nine firms selected are: Boskalis Westminster Middle East Oman; Hyundai Engineering & Construction Co; Van Oord Oman; Dredging International; Tecnicas Reunidas; Consolidated Contractors Co; China Harbour Engineering Co; Huta Marine Works and Penta Ocean Construction Co.

Handover of the liquid terminal will take place ahead of the refinery's scheduled start-up in early 2019.
