Contract for design and infra works for staff housing project in Ras Al Hamra
18 May 2017

Petroleum Development Oman (PDO), the oil exploration and production company owned by the government of Oman, has invited prequalification applications for providing front-end engineering design (FEED) services for a residential project and detailed design for the associate infrastructure within its Ras Al Hamra staff housing project.

The last date for submitting prequalification applications is 22 May, 2017, said a PDO official.

The residential component Phase 3-5B will supply 506 housing units and construction may begin next year.  

Located 25 km off Muscat International Airport, Ras Al Hamra Development project is a 281-hectare community project for PDO’s employees and their families comprising 1,047 residential units, a school, medical centre, a 9-hole golf course, a 5-star boutique hotel and a mosque.

The first phase comprising 241 residential units was awarded in 2012.

In March 2017 Thomson Reuters Projects reported that PDO had invited interest from investors to invest, develop and operate a hotel and leisure facilities, a golf club house and redevelop the existing commercial zone within the community.
