Consultants have been invited to prequalify for the contract to draw up front-end engineering and design studies for a proposed 200-kilometre mixed feedstock pipeline to link Mina al-Fahal with the planned Sohar refinery. A request for proposal (RFP) documents is due to be issued in late January for the contract, which also entails drawing up detailed tender documents for the main engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) package (MEED 11:10:02).
