Oman’s SOHAR Freezone has signed a land lease agreement with Integrated Solutions Plant and Land Services for 15,000 sqm within the freezone in order to establish a liquid fertilizer plant.

The project represents an investment of $5 million (RO 2.2 million) and it includes the potential for future expansion which would see the plant produce ammonium sulphate to strengthen Oman’s export sector.
