Oman Oil Company (OOC) and International Petroleum Investment Company (IPIC) owned by the Government of Abu Dhabi, have announced the formation of a joint venture company to own and manage the development of the planned refinery and petrochemical complex in Duqm. The company, Duqm Refinery and Petrochemical Industries LLC is owned 50/ 50 by OOC and IPIC.

The refinery, which is the first phase of the project, is expected to have a capacity of 230,000 barrels per day and is expected to be completed by 2017. The second phase of the project will see the development of a petrochemical complex.

The commitment showed by the two companies emphasises the importance of the project in verifying the income of Oman and providing job opportunities to Omanis."
