Oman Oil Refineries and Petroleum Industries Company – Orpic – will officially inaugurate one of its strategic growth projects, the Muscat-Sohar Product Pipeline (MSPP) and the main fuel terminal in Al Jefnain on 21 March 2018.
The $336mn investment is an important logistic project across the Sultanate of Oman which will deliver more than 50% of Oman’s fuel via the state-of-the-art storage facility in Al Jefnain. In addition to meeting the domestic future demand for fuels, this project will reduce pollution resulting from lower truck movements in Muscat by 70%.
This is the first-of-its-kind to be constructed in Oman – removing the need for Orpic to ship refined products between Sohar and Mina Al Fahal (Muscat), and bringing a new level of efficiency and lower costs to its business. It is worth to mention here that the project will also be equipped with loading facilities designed to load up to 700 trucks per day.
