Oman to Privatize Power, Telecoms, Airport, Mail

LCG, Nov. 20, 2000--The Persian Gulf sultanate Oman plans to split up its electric industry into separate business and sell them to private investors, according to a report published Saturday in the Oman Observer.

Electricity and Water Minister Mohammad bin Ali al-Qetabi told the paper "It will involve the unbundling and corporatization of the ministry's existing activities into a number of separate generation, transmission and distribution businesses."

The Omani government would continue to own and operate the separate businesses until they were on a successful commercial footing before selling them off, Qetabi said. He added that the government was also in the process of privatizing its telecommunication business and its international airport and plans to sell of its postal service. The water sector would remain under government control.

Last week, Oman awarded to AES Corp. of the U.S. a $455 million, 400 megawatt project to build a private power plant in Barka and is expected to sign a concession agreement next month with a consortium of Omani and foreign companies to build a private power plant in Salalah.

PSEG Global Inc. of the U.S. and Royal Dutch/Shell are principal members of the Salalah group.
