Oman Oil Refineries and Petroleum Industries Company – Orpic has officially inaugurated one of its strategic growth projects, the Muscat Suhar Product Pipeline (MSPP) and the main fuel terminal in Al Jefnain yesterday (21st March, 2018).
The USD 336 million investment is an important logistic project across the Sultanate which will deliver more than 50% of Oman’s fuel via the state-of-the-art storage facility in Al Jefnain. In addition to meeting the domestic future demand for fuels, this project will reduce pollution resulting from lower truck movements in Muscat by 70%.
This is the first of its kind to be constructed in Oman – removing the need for Orpic to ship refined products between Suhar and Mina Al Fahal (Muscat), and bringing a new level of efficiency and lower costs to its business. It is worth to mention that the project is also equipped with loading facilities designed to load up to 700 trucks per day.
