Orpic’s Liwa Plastics Industries Complex (EPC 3) Ground Breaking

Monday, Apr 24, 2017

Orpic will celebrate the ground breaking of its Liwa Plastics Industries Complex (LPIC) Project – Engineering and Procurement and Construction (EPC) 3 next Thursday, 27th April, 2017 which will take place in the Wilayate of Ibri, Fahud.

The event will be held under the patronage of H.E. Sultan bin Salim Al Habsi, Secretary-General, Supreme Council for Planning and Orpic Chairman in the presence of a number of officials and community members from the Wilayate of Ibri.

The Engineering and Procurement and Construction (EPC) 3 brings for the first time to Oman the Natural Gas Extraction Plant, worth USD 688 million, which is a consortium of two corporations namely: GS Engineering and Construction, and Mitsui & Co. Ltd.

LPIC will firmly reinforce Orpic as a recognized player in the international petrochemicals marketplace – enabling Oman, for the first time, to produce polyethylene, the form of plastic that rates highest in terms of global demand and increased the current production of polypropylene.

LPIC is the largest of the three strategic growth projects undertaken by Orpic to fulfil its vision of building an Omani integrated refining and petrochemical business. This project will be the first-of-its-kind in the Sultanate and will enable Oman to take the downstream plastics industry to the next level.
