Orpic's polypropylene output crosses 1mn ton mark

Aug '12
Oman Oil Refineries and Petroleum Industries Company (Orpic) has announced that its output of superior quality polypropylene homopolymer at Sohar plant has surpassed one million tons.
 
Improved efficiencies throughout the Orpic business has resulted in a 41 per cent improvement at the Polypropylene Plant over the last year. This has a major contributing factor to achieving passing the one million ton production milestone, the company said.
 
The one million ton polypropylene production is a significant landmark for the Sohar plant, which commenced operations in October 2006.
 
Forming a part of Oman’s policy to develop downstream petrochemical products, the Sohar plant is the sole polypropylene production plant in the Sultanate of Oman. 
 
Orpic’s Sohar-based refinery is the main supplier of feedstock that goes in production of polypropylene, which is vital for development of the domestic integrated petrochemicals industry.
 
Besides serving the domestic market, Orpic exports its polypropylene products to several other markets including India, Sri Lanka, UAE, Pakistan, Bangladesh and some Middle East countries. 
 
Orpic came into existence due to assimilation of Sohar and Al Fahal refineries, alongside petrochemical aromatics and polypropylene plants in a process that kicked off over just a couple of years ago.
 
During last year, Orpic made US$ 400 million or 150 million rials in operating profits, which is a record high.
 
At present, all four plants of the company in Sohar and Mina Al Fahal are delivering record outputs.
