Oman has moved to reassure private water and power producers that they will still get paid in full, a week after the country’s central offtaker shocked companies by saying it would not be meeting its bills.

At the start of last week, it emerged that the 11 private companies that supply just under 1.5 million m3/d of water in the Sultanate had been told by the Oman Power and Water Procurement Company (OPWP) that there would be a “hold back” of power and water capacity investment payments from April invoices onwards.
