Description Oman has committed to invest $7bn to advance the development of wastewater over the next 20 years. This investment is a part of its commitment to achieving the Sustainable Development Goal 6 (SDG6), which is one of the 17 global goals set by the United Nations General Assembly in 2015 for the year 2030, reported Oman Observer. A report by the Supreme Council for Planning (SCP) stated that 86% of the country’s total drinking water needs come from desalinated water, while groundwater caters to the remaining 14% requirement. Desalinated water output increased from 196 million m3 per day in 2011 to 311 million m3 per day by the end of 2018. The government has also planned to increase the investments in wastewater treatment and reuse. The report also mentioned that the sewage collection and disposal accounts for 98% of the urban population and around 97% of the rural population. Currently, the country has 68 wastewater plants, which produce about 94 million m3 per year of wastewater. About 60% of this water is used for refrigeration, agriculture and aesthetic afforestation. The SCP report stated: “Through the National Strategy for the Use of Tertiary-treated Wastewater 2040, Oman seeks to expand the construction of sewage treatment plants and extend sewage network lines at a cost of $7 billion, averaging $381 million per year.” Treatment and reuse of wastewater are expected to reduce groundwater pollution. The report further added: “In view of the current water shortage pressure estimated at about 128 per cent, the sultanate seeks to ensure sustainable freshwater availability and supply by 2030 by balancing supply and demand and expanding the use of non-conventional water resources (treated wastewater) currently used to replenish some coastal aquifers.” “Furthermore, by implementing water demand management (WDM) policies and changing cropping patterns and traditional irrigation systems, Oman aims to increase current water use efficiency, estimated at around $47 per cu m in 2018, with a focus on the agriculture sector, which is the largest water-consumer, accounting for 83 per cent of total uses,” it added.

Description French utility-based company Suez has won a contract worth €145m ($161.4m) to build and operate a wastewater treatment plant in New Delhi, India. The contract was awarded to Suez by Delhi Jal Board, the governing body for water management. The plant is expected to have a capacity of 564,000m3 per day once it becomes completely operational. It will be built in Okhla, which is located in the south of the country’s capital. The contract includes three-and-a-half years of design and construction phase along with 11years of operation and maintenance. Replacing the current treatment plant in Okhla, the new plant is expected to be the largest plant in India. This contract is a part of Phase 3 of Yamuna Action Plant (YAP), a bilateral project between the Indian Government and Japan. The Yamuna, which is one of the major sources of water for the capital city, is heavily polluted. This project aims to restore the quality of the water in the river. The Government of Delhi will provide 19% of the funding for the project while the remaining will come from the Central Government. Suez Group senior executive VP in charge of the international division Ana Giros said:, “For more than 30 years, Suez has been supporting large municipalities such as New Delhi, Bangalore and Calcutta, in the development of innovative solutions to preserve water resources, a growing challenge in a country facing rapid population growth and urbanisation.” The plant will be fitted with technologies to restore the water quality to the optimum levels in order to comply with the latest national standards of water quality. One of the parameters requires the nitrogen level in the water to be less than 10mg/l. Digelis Duo2 and Drainis Turbo, the processes used by the plant, will help reduce the sewage volume produced by the plant. This sludge will then be converted into fertiliser for use in agriculture and energy. This energy produced from the sludge recovery process will cater to 50% of the plant’s needs.

Description The US Export-Import (Exim) Bank said on Thursday its board intends to vote on a $5-billion direct loan for the development of a liquefied natural gas (LNG) project in Mozambique, the banks biggest export financing deal in years. The government export lender said it has notified the US Congress of the transaction, which will be ready for a final board vote in 35 days. ADVERTISEMENT If approved, the transaction would support US exports of goods and services for the engineering, procurement and construction of the onshore LNG plant and related facilities on the Afungi Peninsula in northern Mozambique. Exim said over the five-year construction period the financing could support 16 400 American jobs among suppliers in Texas, Pennsylvania, Georgia, New York, Tennessee, Florida and the District of Columbia. ADVERTISEMENT It estimated interest and fee income from the transaction of more than $600-million from a consortium led by Occidental Petroleum Corp.s recently acquired Anadarko Petroleum Co. US exports to supply the project, however, face competition from financing offered by foreign export credit agencies. The project would be the single biggest financing deal since Exims full lending powers were restored in May with the confirmation of three new board members. That ended a drought of nearly four years in which the bank could not approve loans and guarantees of more than $10-million due to a protracted fight in Congress over its future. The bank, seen by some conservatives as providing taxpayer-backed "corporate welfare" and "crony capitalism," was unable to finance major infrastructure projects like the Mozambique LNG plant and commercial aircraft built by Boeing. It needs Congress to renew its charter before September 30 to keep operating. US President Donald Trumps administration views the bank as a tool to boost US exports in an increasingly competitive trade environment. "This critical project is not only a win for American companies and workers, supporting over 10 000 jobs in the US, but also for the people of Mozambique as well," US Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross said in a statement. Exim said the Mozambique LNG project would begin to develop the Rovuma Basin, one of he worlds most extensive untapped reserves of natural gas, with a major impact on Mozambiques economy.
