    New brand launched for Oman's refining and petrochemicals business -

    13 June 2011 - Muscat, Oman: Orpic, the new name and brand for Oman Oil Refineries and Petroleum Industries Company SAOC, was launched today at the firm's plants in Muscat and Sohar.

    Orpic is the culmination of a successful 12-month integration program for Oman Refineries and Petrochemicals Company LLC (ORPC), Aromatics Oman LLC (AOL) and Oman Polypropylene LLC (OPP). With plants in both Muscat and Sohar, Orpic aims to set a new standard for Oman's refining and petrochemicals industry with increased efficiencies and significantly improved operational and financial performance.

    Mr. Musab Al Mahruqi, Chief Executive Officer of Orpic, said:

    "The launch of the new name and company brand is the result of wide-ranging consultation with employees and external stakeholders over the past four months.

    "It marks another step in the evolution of this company into an integrated Omani refining and petrochemicals business we are proud of. Our employees and our company have made great progress over the last year and I know that, united behind this new brand, we will continue those efforts into the future..

    "Our new brand identity is fresh and modern, and represents perfectly our position as a modern and forward-thinking company."

    The launch of the new brand 'Orpic' is part of the restructure process started almost a year ago to integrate Oman Refineries and petrochemical Company with each of Aromatics Oman and Oman Polypropylene.

    Mr. Al Mahruqi added:

    "Orpic has ambitious plans. We are building an integrated Omani refining and petrochemical business we are proud of. That means a business which operates safely and reliably, while paying due care to the environment.

    "We are proud to deliver fuel to our nation as well as delivering a financial return to our shareholders. We also aim towards creating challenging and rewarding careers for our people.

    "This year, we are providing over 130 opportunities for training and development for new graduates to be trained in the fields of operation and maintenance of refineries and petrochemical industries. We have plans to recruit over 400 Omanis in the next 5 years and enroll in similar training programs."

    The integration has created a business which brings together more than 1,600 employees, operating Oman's two refineries and downstream petrochemicals plants. Mina Al Fahal Refinery began operations in 1982, while the Sohar Refinery and Polypropylene Plant started up in 2006. The latest addition to the complex was the Aromatics Plant, which started commercial operations in 2010. Together, they have a production capacity of 222,000 barrels per day of naphtha, liquid petroleum gas (LPG), gas oil, gasoline, fuel oil and jet oil; 818,000 metric tonnes per annum of paraxylene and 198,000 metric tonnes of benzene; and 350,000 metric tonnes of polypropylene. They are major industrial facilities providing significant contributions to the nation and its economy.

    Orpic is owned by the Government of the Sultanate of Oman and by Oman Oil Company SAOC, the nation's oil energy investment business.
