Revealing details about the project’s progress, OQ said that $1.5bn (OMR 577.5m) has been invested in local goods and services as part of the project.
American engineering and contracting heavyweight Mcdermott has been working alongside CB&I on the project, which upon commissioning would help increase Orpic's plastic production by more than one million tonnes, giving Oman Oil and Orpic a total of 1.4 million tonnes of polyethylene and polypropylene production by 2020.
OQ said on its official Twitter account: “LPIC, one of the largest OQ projects, will set to further increase the value that can be derived from crude oil & natural gas and serves as a platform to create jobs and growth opportunities for the Sultanate.”
