Pöyry Oyj: Pöyry and Dentons awarded consulting services assignment to develop the rules for a new electricity market in Oman

PÖYRY PLC Press Release 2 February 2016 12.00 pm (EET)

Pöyry and Dentons awarded consulting services assignment to develop the rules
for a new electricity market in Oman

Oman Power and Water Procurement Company (OPWP) has awarded Pöyry and Dentons
a consulting services assignment to help create the detailed framework for a
new spot electricity market. The electricity sector in Oman is evolving
quickly with demand expected to grow at 9% per year, doubling the size of the
system by the early 2020s. It has been decided to develop a spot electricity
market in Oman that will operate alongside the existing long-term contracting
arrangements. This will increase the potential for competition in the sector
and create a mechanism to access uncontracted capacity that might otherwise
not be accessible.

OPWP has adopted a high level design for the spot market and Pöyry and Dentons
will assist in developing this design into the full rules. This is an
industry leading project and represents the latest stage in the evolution of
Oman's electricity market. If adopted, the structure will be the first of its
kind in the GCC countries (Cooperation Council for the Arab States of the
Gulf) so this is of both regional and national significance. Pöyry and
Dentons bring together deep energy sector expertise in Oman and international
experience in designing electricity markets in countries around the world.
The project began in October 2015 and is expected to run to the end of 2016.

"Pöyry is proud to support OPWP in this important project, by applying our
extensive international market design experience to the development of the
electricity market in Oman" says Stephen Woodhouse, Director at Pöyry

"Dentons have a long history of working in the Oman electricity sector and we
are delighted to further contribute to its development" says Christopher
McGee-Osborne, Co-chair of Dentons' Global Energy practice

The value of the order is not disclosed. The order was recognised within the
Management Consulting Business Group order stock in Q4 2015.
