Monheim am Rhein/Germany – The chemical company Oxea, part of the Oman Oil Company & Orpic Group, joins eight other companies in a process to create a new, integrated energy company which will trade under the brand name ‘OQ’. OQ aims to become a global leading energy company, capturing and capitalising on greater participation in the global hydrocarbon value chain.

“During the ongoing integration phase, our current business processes will remain unchanged. Oxea will continue to provide the very reliable and flexible services that customers from across the globe have come to expect from us in recent years,” said Dr. Oliver Borgmeier, COO at Oxea.

“In fact, with a focus on oxo derivatives and specialty chemicals, we invest significantly to serve the global markets better. Digitalisation and automation present considerable opportunities to enhance efficiency in our plants and to improve our flexibility further to meet changing demand. By 2021,we expect additional production capacity for TCD Alcohol to go on-stream that will cover the anticipated global demand for years to come. This highly functional molecule finds uses in optoelectronics, packaging, automotive applications, as well as in specialty adhesives and surface coating systems.”

Specialist Book „Heat Transfer Technique“The comprehensive standard work „Heat Transfer Technique“ offers not only a detailed and well-founded presentation of the basics of heat transfer technique, but also shows the latest state of the art and the latest regulations in the use of organic fluids. Thematically, the book is rounded off with an overview of property data of organic heat transfer fluids as well as many use cases from practical experience.

Also in 2021, Oxea plans to start up its sixth world-scale production plant for carboxylic acids in Oberhausen, Germany. Once brought onstream, it will increase the company’s total production capacity for carboxylic acids by more than 30 per cent.

To ensure a seamless and robust transformation, OQ launched an integration programme to form one company from nine core assets: Orpic, Oman Oil Company, Oman Oil Company Exploration and Production, Oman Gas Company, Duqm Refinery, Salalah Methanol Company, Oman Trading International, Oxea, and Salalah Liquified Petroleum Gas.
