STP infrastructure is under pressure right across the GCC

Strong economic and population growth, coupled with insufficient investment, has seen daily inflows exceeding design capacity across most of the GCC wastewater industry, leading to rising concerns about TSE quality

Networks have also been feeling the strain

While Oman and Saudi Arabia are looking to significantly expand network coverage, other GCC states are having to deal with major issues related to aging infrastructure

The GCC requires significant new STP capacity

Treatment capacity will have to more than double in the period 2009-15 if population growth is to be met, TSE quality is to improve and some existing capacity is to be retired

But the GCC has made a start in building new capacity

As of 2009, there was an estimated 2.1 million cm/d of major plant capacity under construction in the GCC wastewater sector, with the UAE accounting for about half of the total

The outlook for 2010-11

*Covers actual awards for first nine months of 2010 and excludes desalination

The GCC is forecast to deliver about $3.5bn of wastewater and water awards (excluding desalination) in both 2010 and 2011 with Saudi Arabia expected to overtake the UAE as the biggest source

Clients are using different procurement models for the new capacity

Kuwait has become the latest GCC state to declare an intention to follow the private procurement model for new wastewater treatment capacity

Closing remarks

The GCC wastewater sector will need to more than double treatment capacity in the period 2009-15 to meet demand and replace infrastructure that will have to be retired

An estimated $10bn will be required to build the new treatment capacity alone

The private sector is likely to be called upon to deliver 30-40 per cent of the total with Bahrain, Abu Dhabi and potentially Kuwait expected to be the largest PPP markets

The role of the private sector is also set to extend with more network management type contracts anticipated in Qatar and possibly Kuwait

Competition for STP contracts will intensify with Korean contractors expected to significantly up their presence in the sector as a result of declining opportunities in the regional oil and gas market
