Oman Oil Company Exploration & Production LLC (OOCEP), a subsidiary of Oman Oil Company S.A.O.C (OOC), has successfully completed the loading of the first shipment of crude oil that was fully processed at Musandam Gas Plant on, 4 May this year. The tanker “TSURUGA" safely lifted approx. 300,000 barrels of crude from (Musandam Terminal for crude oil export). The tanker departed the Single Point Mooring upon the successful completion of the loading operation which marked a major achievement for OOCEP and for Oman as a whole.
Commenting on the successful shipment of the crude oil, Engineer Khalifa Al Makhmari, the Musandam Gas Plant Project Director said: “The achievement of this very significant event marks the MGP Terminal as the second Omani crude export terminal after Mina Al Fahal on the international crude oil trade routes. We expect Musandam Gas Plant with its wide range of oil and gas processing and export capabilities to be a major contributor to the refining and exporting of crude oil and gas in the sultanate."
Musandam Gas Plant processes production fluids from the nearby offshore fields and has a processing capacity of up to 20,000 barrels of crude; 45 million cubic feet of gas and 75 tonnes of LPG per day.
