KEY PROJECTS IN OMAN
Duqm Refinery & Petrochemical Complex Project
A major greenfield refinery project strategically located in the Special Economic Zone of Duqm that will have a capacity to process about 230,000 barrels per day from a variety of crude mixtures. It aims to produce middle distillates like clean diesel and clean jet fuel plus naptha and LPG as its primary products.
Project Cost: US$ 6 billion
Salalah LPG Extraction Project
One of the most ambitious projects in Dhofar, the project involves the extraction of all propane, butane and condensate associated with the natural gas pipeline from the Salalah area. Its operation period is 25 years with a guaranteed gas supply, with a capacity of 327,000 per year, 10% of which is to be used locally, while 90% is for export. It is likely to start actual production run sometime in 2019.
Fahud NGL Plant Project
The production of the feedstock for Liwa Plastics Industrial Complex, located at the port of Sohar's industrial area. The liquids will be transported through a 200-kilometer pipeline and serve as a petrochemicals facility with a production capacity of 900,000 tons per year of polyethylene and 300,000 tons per year of polypropylene.
Combined Project Cost with Fahud NGL Plant Project: US$ 3.6 billion
Liwa Plastics Industries Complex Project
A steam cracker project which will process light ends produced in Orpic’s Sohar Refinery and its Aromatics plant as well as optimize Natural Gas Liquids (NGLs) extracted from currently available natural gas supplies.
After LPIC, plastics production will have increased by 1 million tons. The project is expected to be completed in 2019.
Project Cost: US$ 3 billion
Sohar Refinery Improvement Project (SRIP)
The addition of five new units: project is expected to Crude Distillation Unit, Vacuum Distillation Unit, Delayed Coker Units, Hydrocracker Unit and Bitumen Blowing Unit. The project is expected to raise production of fuels, naphtha and propylene by 70%. Post-SRIP Orpic’s fuels production will increase by 4.2mn tons a year, with overall production levels reaching 13mn tons per annum in 2016.
Project Cost: US$ 2.6 billion
