Recently published research from Business Monitor International, "Oman Water Report Q4 2014", is now available at Fast Market Research
Boston, MA -- (SBWIRE) -- 11/04/2014 -- Oman is continuing to invest heavily in its water sector and this quarter has seen a particular emphasis on the increase of water supplies via desalination and well fields. However, the most significant development in the long term evolution of the country's water sector is, in our view, the planned revision of the procurement processes to encourage greater transparency and easier water purchase agreements.
This quarter, due to the release of new historical data, we have upwardly revised our extraction forecasts. This is largely due to Oman's ramping up of the well field water extraction, while waiting for planned desalination developments to come online. We are forecasting 2014 extraction will reach 284.7mn m3 and 2018 extraction will be 349.7mn m3.

The country is planning to revise its procurement processes and water purchase agreement processes, which will, in our view, offer significant new opportunities for water infrastructure companies and utilities. However, as these will not become operational until 2017, they will have no bearing on existing projects in the pipeline. In addition the emphasis on greater transparency in these deals in the future will also provide advantages to foreign companies. The revision of existing processes will also include the establishment of certainty with regards to the PWPAs that are due to expire within the next few years.
The water sector in Oman is open to private operators, with a viable and stable regulatory framework that is geared towards prioritising investment from foreign countries and a commitment to a level playing field that is on a par with the best in the MENA region. This makes the market an attractive investment destination, with the expected increases in demand likely to keep driving growth forward. International developers are involved in a range of projects, including desalination, water system management and wastewater treatment.
