The country’s water and power sectors have undergone a steady liberalisation process since legislation outlining privatisation was passed in 2004, and this has generally been considered as a success. As one of the most open in the region to foreign investment and private ownership of assets, Oman’s utilities sector is expanding strongly to meet growing demand for power and water. There are some major schemes in the pipeline at various stages of planning and construction. Opportunities for generation continue, and more may also open up in the downstream power sector if the government pushes ahead with liberalisation.
