A major tender for building a service corridor between Duqm Refinery and a liquid jetty has been floated by the Special Economic Zone Authority (Sezad).

Tender documents for the project will be available for contracting firms from August 24, and the last date of submission is September 16.

This mutually beneficial partnership between OOC and IPIC was established during the incorporation of Duqm Refinery, which is based in Al Duqm in the southeasternAl Wusta Governorate of the Sultanate.
This strategic maritime location gives the project the competitive advantage of being in the path of international shipping lines in the Indian Ocean and the Arabian Sea, thus easing the process of transporting goods into and out of the region.
