Excerpts from the expected project products:

 The project is a homogeneous entity designed to buy crude oil from outside of Oman and store it  for a period of not less than two years in order to establish volumes giant strategy , which provides the largest refinery of its kind in the region of the refining capacity will reach four hundred and twenty thousand barrels per day , as all outputs processing by petrochemical complex terminals facility , which includes more than 17 factories produce 15 million metric tons annually from oil-based products in addition to the 3.4 of 10 metric tons per year of ethylene and propylene derivatives .


About the project

The new investment company for oil and gas will provide project with three hundred thousand to four hundred thousand barrels per day of crude oil, the proposed refinery will be supplied ore heavy oil by buying from abroad. The new investment company for oil and gas, which will adopt the high standards of quality and standards of protection of the environment is characterized by reliance and self-sufficiency of energy where it will produce self electrical energy, for example some of the important products and by that contribute to the payment of the national economy and will help to support all kinds of  industry wither it was  light or medium scale , among the products some of the products , The ethane cracker  unit which  uses  high-temperature catalysts for converting heavy oil into gasoline, naphtha .finally, propylene, which is used to make everything from insulating materials to durable goods. Cracking ethane cracker is used similar to convert ethane into polymer grade ethylene, which is used in lubricants, detergents and other products manufacturing process. We enclose the detailed study with this simple summary and we hope to draw the attention to this project it is mainly based on the purchase of crude oil and stored for long periods and then deal with it in order to avoid speculation global markets and volatile prices.
