Oman Oil Refineries and Petroleum Industries Co (Orpic) has said it plans scheduled maintenance at some refinery units from June 25 for about a month, Reuters has reported. “Production of fuel products and chemicals will continue, but at a lower level. The shutdown will take around a month,” Orpic said. The company operates two refineries: Sohar with a total processing capacity of 116,000 barrels per day (bpd) of Omani crude and Mina Al Fahal with a refining capacity of 106,000 bpd. It declined to say which refinery or units will be affected by the shutdown. The Sohar refinery resumed normal operations last month after repair work forced a shutdown in April.
