BMI View: 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.
