Or­pic’s Liwa Plas­tics In­dus­tries Com­plex project achieves safety mile­stone

Muscat Daily - - PRESS RE­LEASES -

As part of its value to put safety and the en­vi­ron­ment first, Or­pic’s Liwa Plas­tics In­dus­tries Com­plex (LPIC) project has achieved an im­por­tant safety mile­stone by com­plet­ing 10mn man hours with­out Lost Time In­jury (LTI).

This ma­jor achieve­ment is at­trib­uted to the strict safety cul­ture in Or­pic, par­tic­u­larly by fol­low­ing its 12 safety rules at all times and across all its plants and lo­ca­tions. Or­pic has cre­ated a work­ing en­vi­ron­ment in which the staff can work safely.

There­fore, all Or­pic em­ploy­ees and con­trac­tors have de­vel­oped a sense of re­spon­si­bil­ity to­wards their own safety, their col­leagues and the as­sets of the com­pany, en­sur­ing that all safety mea­sures are fol­lowed and that ev­ery­one re­turns home safely.

Or­pic is com­mit­ted to ex­cel­lence in health, safety and en­vi­ron­men­tal (HSE) per­for­mance dur­ing all op­er­a­tions and ac­tiv­i­ties. As a re­puted and pro­fes­sional pro­ducer of pe­tro­leum and petro­chem­i­cal prod­ucts, at­ten­tion to HSE and com­pli­ance to ap­pli­ca­ble laws is crit­i­cal to Or­pic’s busi­ness phi­los­o­phy.

Or­pic gives the safety of its peo­ple, plants, en­vi­ron­ment and lo­cal com­mu­ni­ties the high­est pri­or­ity, over and above its pro- duc­tion ob­jec­tives.

Oman Oil Re­finer­ies and Pe­tro­leum In­dus­tries Com­pany (Or­pic) is one of Oman’s largest com­pa­nies and one of the most rapidly grow­ing busi­nesses in the Mid­dle East oil in­dus­try.

Or­pic’s re­finer­ies in So­har and Mus­cat as well as the Aro­mat­ics and Polypropy­lene plants in So­har pro­vide fuel, chem­i­cals, plas­tics, and other pe­tro­leum prod­ucts, to Oman and to the world.

To con­tinue meet­ing the needs of Oman and in­ter­na­tional mar­kets, Or­pic is un­der­tak­ing three strate­gic growth projects known as Mus­cat So­har Prod­uct Pipe­line (MSPP - 2017), So­har Re­fin­ery Im­prove­ment Project (SRIP - 2017) and Liwa Plas­tics In­dus­tries Com­plex (LPIC - 2020), in line with the com­pany’s strat­egy to add value to the oil and gas re­sources of Oman.

Liwa Plas­tics In­dus­tries Com­plex will trans­form Or­pic’s prod­uct mix and busi­ness model, dou­ble com­pany profit, cre­ate new busi­ness op­por­tu­ni­ties, gen­er­ate sig­nif­i­cant em­ploy­ment op­por­tu­ni­ties and sup­port the de­vel­op­ment of a down­stream plas­tics in­dus­try in Oman.

Fol­low­ing com­mis­sion­ing, plas­tics pro­duc­tion is fore­cast to have in­creased by more than 1mn tonnes, giv­ing Or­pic a to­tal of 1.4mn tonnes of poly­eth­yl­ene and polypropy­lene pro­duc­tion.

With the highly in­te­grated com­plex in So­har con­sist­ing of Or­pic’s re­finer­ies, Aro­mat­ics plant, Polypropy­lene plant, steam cracker and the down­stream Polypropy­lene and Poly­eth­yl­ene units, the op­er­a­tion will be con­sid­ered as one of the finest in­te­grated re­fin­ery and petro­chem­i­cal fa­cil­ity com­bi­na­tions in the world and it will achieve the max­i­mum value added for Oman’s hy­dro­car­bon re­sources.
