    Duqm Refinery project update - video

    Duqm’s strategic location along the coast gives it access to the Indian Ocean and the Arabian Sea – a transatlantic highway for shipping lines and containers, allowing the refinery access to markets both east and west. Shipping lines choosing Duqm to offload crude oil or take on the refinery’s products save two days of travelling time compared to other ports in the region.

    The Duqm Refinery project is the result of a strategic partnership between Oman Oil Co and Kuwait Petroleum International, which is respectively owned by the Omani and Kuwaiti governments. This partnership not only signifies the largest cross-border GCC investment into the downstream sector but also is an example of the largest foreign direct investment into Oman.

    The refinery, once completed, will have the capacity to process 230,000 barrels of crude oil per day that will serve both local and international markets. The state-of-the-art refinery has been designed to process various types of blends and will be producing diesel, jet fuel, naphtha, LPG, sulphur and pet coke as its primary products.
