Project Details

In December 2019, Oman Oil and Orpic Group integrated nine core businesses under a new brand identity; named ‘OQ’. The meaning behind the brand name is essential, as the ‘O’ stands for Oman and opportunity, while the ‘Q’ pays tribute to Sultan Qaboos bin Said.

OQ is a global integrated energy company operating in 16 countries around the world and covering the entire value chain from exploration and production, to marketing and distribution of end-user products. OQ’s fuels and chemicals are sold in over 60 countries worldwide, making them a prominent player in the energy sector. Salalah Methanol Company LLC (SFZ) a methanol producing company was one of the nine businesses integrated under the new brand identity OQ.

The Salalah Methanol Plant includes 3,125 metric tons of methanol plant per day, and related utilities and off-sites, as well as export facilities. The facilities include power generation, a desalination unit, a nitrogen generation unit, etc.

The feedstock, which is dry sweet natural gas, is supplied by OQ – Oman Gas Company through a pipeline. The target market is the fertilizer industry.

Based on the continued success of the Denso Steelcoat Tank Base Protection System throughout various industries in the U.A.E., over the last eight years, the client has selected the system as the best option to seal the berm seal of 15 tanks with diameters varying from 2.62m to 62.71m.
