Orpic issues EPCC tender for key facilities

August 2015

Oman’s Oil Refineries and Petroleum Industries Company (Orpic) recently floated an EPCC (engineering, procurement, construction and commissioning) tender for its facilities at a refinery near Muscat.

The tender on a call-off basis for the Mina Al Fahal refinery also includes a polypropylene plant and aromatics plant in Sohar and Raysut Terminal in Salalah, said an Oman Observer report.

Orpic’s Muscat-Sohar Products Pipeline (MSPP) and Al Jifinan Terminal project will connect the company’s existing Mina Al Fahal refinery with refineries in Sohar via a new two-way, 290-km, multi-product pipeline valued at $320 million.

“Delivery of Orpic’s MSPP project is in line with our strategic growth plan to revolutionise the way we operate our oil product logistics model — focusing on a higher standard of efficiency, lower costs, eliminating safety and security hazards, improving environmental impacts and serving the sultanate,” Musab Al Mahrouqi, Orpic CEO, said.
