Air Liquide and Oman Oil Refineries and Petroleum Industries Company (Orpic), Oman’s national refining company, recently signed a long term agreement for the supply of nitrogen to the Liwa Plastics Industries Complex.

Muscat/Oman — The project is part of a new plastics production complex including the country’s first steam cracker, which Orpic is adding to its existing production facilities in the Sohar industrial port area. The French contractor is investing around € 20 million to build a state-of-the-art nitrogen production unit with a total capacity of 500 tonnes of nitrogen per day.

Expected to start operations in the first quarter of 2019, the new nitrogen plant, along with the expansion of the company’s existing pipeline network, will supply nitrogen for the customer’s plastics production complex expanding to a capacity of polyethylene and polypropylene of 1.4 million tonnes per year.

The nitrogen production unit will be designed and built by the contractor's Engineering and Construction teams and will be owned and operated by Air Liquide Sohar Industrial Gases Company.
