ORPIC wraps maintenance at Sohar refinery

Oman Oil Refineries & Petroleum Industries Co. (ORPIC) has completed planned maintenance activities at its 116,000-b/d Sohar refinery.

Work on several units was completed as of July 14, with those units scheduled to resume operations in a July 15-16 timeframe, ORPIC said in a notice posted to its Facebook page.

While the units will begin the restart process, it could take up to a week before the units return to normal operational levels, as is standard with refinery start-ups, the company said.

No details were disclosed regarding either the nature of the planned maintenance nor the units involved.
