PDO opens first permanent asphalted runway in Oman
In a ceremony attended by a number of high-ranking government officials, Oman’s Minister of Transport and Communications Malik Bin Suleiman Al-Ma’mari officially opened a new asphalted runway that Petroleum Development Oman (PDO) constructed at Fahud airport on January 25, 2004.
The one million Omani rial ($2.5 million) project involved moving 40,000 cubic meters of earth and laying 145,000 square meters of asphalt and took more than two years from start to finish. Al-Mashrikia-Travo was the company that carried out the asphalting, and Galfar Engineering & Contracting carried out the electrical works. — (menareport.com)
