The SDA unit is a major part of the Sohar refinery expansion project, which will increase the refinery's production of such petroleum products as LPG, naphtha, jet A-1 fuel, gasoline, diesel, and propylene. The unit will be designed to process 2.5 million tonnes/year of vacuum residue of Oman Export Blend crude oil to produce deasphalted oil and asphalt for road bitumen production.

The SDA unit is to be on stream in 2015, according to the announcement, which did not disclose further terms of the contract.
