The Public Authority for Electricity and Water (PAEW) in Oman has outlined plans to reorganise its internal accounting structure as the country prepares for a radical overhaul of its water sector starting later this year.

The national utility’s 2015 annual report, published this week, reveals plans to formally track the organisation’s water supply security and the quality of assets for the first time as part of a number of new key performance indicators aimed at making the PAEW able to operate under a formal regulatory structure.

The restructuring of the water sector – which could involve the merging of water and wastewater services in Oman as well as a greater role for private investors – began in May, with a team of advisors due to deliver a report by the end of the year. One key aim will be tackling levels of unaccounted-for water, currently running at around 35% in the Sultanate.
