Bureau16-10-2017, 02:39 AM

Oman Oil Refineries and Petroleum Industries Company – Orpic marks the beginning of its commercial operations at the Muscat Suhar Product Pipeline (MSPP) project through its main fuel terminal in Al Jefnain. The USD 320 million investment is one of Orpic’s strategic growth projects which will deliver more than 50% of Oman’s fuel via the state-of-the-art storage facility. 
Orpic has reached a new milestone of MSPP and Al Jifnain Terminal’s commissioning as it has completed its first operational truck loading to the local oil marketing companies in Oman. 
The fuels are currently supplied by pipeline to the terminal from Orpic’s Suhar Refinery. Al Jifnain Terminal will serve as new hub for fuel supply to local marketing companies. The terminal will start to commercially supply Aviation Fuel by the year end through a direct pipeline to support the requirement of Muscat International Airport. 
In addition to meeting the domestic future demand for fuels, this project will increase the sufficiency of the fuel storage and reduced 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, and bringing a new level of efficiency and lower costs to its business. It is worth to mention that the project will also be equipped with loading facilities designed to cater to the loading of more than 500 trucks per day.
