Oman Oil Refineries and Petroleum Industries Company (Orpic) has revealed that its Muscat-Sohar Product Pipeline (MSPP) project has achieved a milestone of 5 million man hours without lost time injury (LTI), said a report.
With more than 2,000 personnel on board, MSPP is one of the key strategic growth projects which is scheduled for commissioning in 2017, added the report.
The Muscat Sohar Product Pipeline is an important investment for Orpic. In addition to meeting the domestic demand for fuels, which is growing at approximately 5 to 10 per cent per annum, this project will deliver numerous social, economic and environmental benefits including job growth, improved road safety, increased jet fuel supply, logistic efficiencies, and reduced pollution resulting from lower truck movements.
Additionally, Orpic Logistics also celebrated the first edition of the MSPP Safety Award For Excellence (SAFE) programme by recognising 15 employees from contractors and subcontractors for their observance, respect and implementation of health, safety and environment (HSE) policies across the project.
This award will be celebrated each time the project achieves an additional 1 million man-hours without LTI, added the report.
