Omanís Duqm Refinery and Petrochemical Industries Co will approach banks in about two weeks for the debt financing it needs to back a $6 billion refinery project, banking sources familiar with the matter told Reuters.

The refinery, run by the joint venture between Oman Oil Company and Kuwait Petroleum International, will be able to process 230,000 barrels of crude per day and occupy 900 hectares in the Duqm industrial zone, which expects investments of up to $15 billion over the next 15 years.

This zone is Omanís biggest single economic project and part of the Gulf Arab Sultanateís efforts to diversify its economy away from oil revenues.

The project financing for the refinery will involve regional and international banks, which will receive an information memorandum in about two weeks, the sources said.

Duqm Refinery did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

The financing for the project, on which Credit Agricole is working as financial adviser, is expected to be completed in two to three months, the sources said.

The financing is expected to include loans backed by export credit agencies from countries including Italy, Spain and South Korea. It will also likely include an Islamic debt tranche.
