Orpic completes prequalification of engineering, construction firms for Liwa project

SOHAR, OMAN: Oman Oil Refineries and Petroleum Industries Company (Orpic) has finalized the pre-qualification process for the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) work packages of its state-of-the-art Liwa Plastics Industries Complex (LPIC). Taking advantage of Oman’s natural resources and capitalizing on the synergies with the existing refinery and the growing global market for plastics, the $3.6 billion project will create new business opportunities and employment in the Sultanate, and firmly reinforce the company as a significant player in the international petrochemicals marketplace. The project will be executed through four EPC packages which include a Steam Cracker and Polymer Units, a Natural Gas Liquids (NGL) Extraction Unit and a NGL Pipeline from Fahud to Sohar.

“This process is a key milestone to our project and all the contractors were required to demonstrate their knowhow on projects with similar size, nature and complexity, along with their international experience with the generation of in-country value considering the legacy that we want to create to Oman,” said the Henk Pauw, General Manager responsible for the project, Orpic.
