DUBAI (ICIS)--Oman Oil Refineries and Petroleum Industries Co (Orpic) shut down its 117,000 bbl/day refinery in Sohar earlier during the week after a water leakage, a source close to the company said on Thursday.
The source added the refinery may restart the following week should there be no delay in maintenance works.
The Sohar refinery has a 75,250 bbl/day residue fluid catalytic cracking (RFCC) unit, which produces 327,000 tonnes/year of propylene, providing the feedstock for a 340,000 tonnes/year polypropylene (PP) plant at the site.
Orpic comprises Oman Refineries and Petrochemicals Co LLC (ORPC), Aromatics Oman LLC (AOL) and Oman Polypropylene (OPP).
