Oman Cement Company has announced that its US$162m expansion will raise output capacity by 1.2Mt a year late in 2008.

Mr Jamal Al Hooti CEO of Oman Cement said that "The expansion will cost US$162m to supply an extra 1.2Mta by the end of 2008 to help increase supply in the market."

A cabinet minister said earlier in March 2008 that Oman Cement will raise production by 1Mta in 2009 after expanding its plant, whose capacity stood then at 1.87Mta.
