The large-scale polyolefins project "Liwa Plastics Industries Complex" in Sohar / Oman – see Plasteurope.com of 18.08.2016 – is well on schedule, Ahmed al Jahdhami, CEO of the state-owned operator Oman Oil Refineries and Petroleum Industries (Orpic, Sohar; www.orpic.om), told the national press. Around 54% of the plants had already been erected in February 2018. Commissioning could then take place as planned in early 2020.

Global marketing of the expected polyolefins is in progress, according to al Jahdhami, with a marketing company having already been founded. The CEO also named key target markets, with offices opening in Singapore, China, India and Turkey.
