As many as seven international firms have submitted final offers for a contract linked to the development of a major Bulk Liquid Terminal at the Port of Duqm. The project, centring on the establishment of bulk liquid terminaling and storage capacity at Duqm, is a key component of the infrastructure being developed by the Omani government to support the growth of a liquids hub as part of the logistics offerings of the Duqm Special Economic Zone (SEZ).

An extended deadline set by the Duqm SEZ Authority (SEZAD), which is overseeing the tendering of all contracts linked to the zone’s infrastructure development, expired at the end of last month. While the names of the seven bidders have not been disclosed, they are among nine international firms that were originally prequalified by SEZAD to compete for Phase 1 of the Duqm Bulk Liquid Terminal. The nine prequalified firms in question were: 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.

The successful bidder will secure a contract to execute Phase 1 of the project, covering dredging and reclamation works, and the construction of quay walls and berths, among other works.

Execution of topside infrastructure, which includes the construction of storage tanks, warehouses, pipeline corridors, loading arms, and so on, is covered in the Phase 2 package, bidders for which are currently being prequalified. The Duqm Bulk Liquid Terminal will come up along the Northern Lee Breakwater of the port.

While the Phase 1 package will be financed by the SEZ Authority, Phase 2 will be funded by Duqm Petroleum Terminal Company (DPTC), a wholly owned subsidiary of Oman Oil Company (OOC), the wholly government owned energy investment arm.

DPTC is initially looking at developing a roughly 70-hectare site dedicated to the handling and storage of liquids emanating from the 230,000 barrels per day capacity Duqm Refinery currently under construction at the SEZ. Plans drawn up by DPTC envisage tankage capacity for the storage of jet oil, gas oil and naphtha, as well as direct loading of pressured LPG and high sulphur fuel oil.

Facilities for the handling of dry bulk commodities, notably pet coke and sulphur, are envisioned as well. International engineering consultancy services firm WorleyParsons is undertaking the front-end engineering design (FEED) of the Bulk Liquid Terminal project.
