Orpic’s Mina Al Fahal Refinery to undergo major planned Turn Around
Oman Oil Refineries and Petroleum Industries Company - Orpic’s Mina Al Fahal Refinery currently undergoes a major planned turnaround and maintenance activity from 3rd October until 16th November 2017 for 45 days. Comes to ensure that Orpic’s operations run safely and smoothly at all times, this shutdown will be used to execute a number of maintenance activities in order to improve the operational performance of the refinery.

This planned turnaround is undertaken every 4 years to carry out Inspection and testing, debottlenecking projects, revamps and catalyst regeneration that are much needed to ensure refinery reliability and improved efficiency of all its downstream units.

The 45 day maintenaice period will cover modifications to the existing plant to allow a full integration of the new units, being constructed under the Suhar Refinery Improvement Project (SRIP) and Muscat Sohar Product Pipeline (MSPP) project including a distribution depot in Jifnain, that are due for commissioning later in the year. All product supply during the period of the TA has been maliciously scheduled through all Orpic’s delivery points to ensure smooth product delivery to all local marketing companies.

The turnaround is expected to have a total workforce of 2,200 and anticipated 1,000,000 man-hours at site. During the Turn Around period, an increased level of traffic around the Mina Al Fahal area as well as an increased level of noise and flare is expected. Therefore, Orpic relies on the community’s support and understanding during this period while it ensures its best to reduce the impact on the surrounding local community.
