Oman’s Duqm Refinery 'More than 81%' Complet
04.26.2021 - NEWS

April 25, 2021 [Argus] – Construction work on Oman’s 230,000 b/d Duqm refinery project has crossed the 81pc mark, according to operator OQ8.

 

In its latest update issued over the weekend, OQ8, which was formerly known as Duqm Refinery and Petrochemical Industry Company (DRPIC), said the project’s overall progress had exceeded 81pc as of late last month. This is up from 79.9pc in February and 75.67pc as of 25 December 2020.

The refinery — which will produce primarily diesel, jet fuel, naphtha and LPG — was on track to start commissioning in late 2021 or early 2022. But company sources have since suggested that Covid-19 related measures have likely delayed plans somewhat.

The refinery’s feedstock will comprise 65pc Kuwaiti crude and 35pc Omani crude, which will both be stored at the crude storage facility that Oman is currently building at Ras Markaz.

OQ8 is a 50:50 joint venture between Oman’s state-owned OQ and Kuwait’s state-owned Kuwait Petroleum International (KPI), which also operates under the Q8 brand in Europe.
