Liwa Plastics Project, Oman

In December 2015 the Joint Venture of CTCI Taiwan & CB&I Nederland B.V. was awarded by Oman Oil Refineries and Petroleum Industries Company – Orpic a contract for engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) for a Steam Cracker with Off-Sites & Utilities for the Liwa Plastics Industries Complex in Suhar, Sultanate of Oman. The project scope of work includes EPC for a grassroots 880-ktpa ethylene plant, pygas unit and MTBE unit, as well as all the related off-sites and utilities.

Liwa Plastics Industries Complex will transform Orpic’s product mix and business model, double company profit, create new business opportunities, generate significant employment opportunities and support the development of a downstream plastics industry in Oman.

Following commissioning, plastics production is forecast to have increased by more than 1 million tons, giving Orpic a total of 1.4 million tons of polyethylene and polypropylene production.

Our scope consisted in the configuration design, supply, installation and commissioning of Laboratory Analyzers, such as all Gas Chromatographs.
