Oman’s Orpic has awarded five technology licenses worth a combined $80mn for production units in its $3.6bn Liwa Plastics Project complex being built alongside the 116,000 b/d Sohar refinery.
Liwa is one of three major Orpic projects, along with expanding and revamping the Sohar plant itself and building an oil products pipeline and storage terminal (MEES, 14 February).
The announcement follows Orpic’s award of the project management contract to Engineers India Ltd (EIL), and the front-end engineering design (FEED) contract plus a technology license for the 800,000 tons/year steam cracker to Netherlands-based CB&I. Liwa will process light ends from the Sohar refinery and aromatics plant and NGLs from the Fahud field, which will arrive via a 300km pipeline.
