This is an extension of the three-year, OMR 41.8 million ($108.5 million) contract to provide consulting engineering services on Muscat International Airport and Salalah Airport awarded to Hill in 2012.

The one-year extension has an estimated value to Hill of approximately OMR 30.1 million ($78.2 million).

The expansion of Muscat International Airport, the largest airport in Oman, includes a new terminal that will have a capacity of 12 million passengers annually.

The expansion of Salalah Airport, the second largest airport in Oman, involves upgrading it from primarily a domestic airport to make it more suitable for international travelers, including building a new runway long enough to handle the A380 Airbus, and a new terminal that will improve the airport's capacity to one million passengers annually.
