"The turnaround operation, which takes place every four years, is being handled by a total workforce of 2,200 engineers and technicians who will contribute an estimated 1,000,000 man-hours at site to carry out maintenance activities. This is required to integrate the MAF refinery's units with the newly constructed units at the Suhar Refinery Improvement Project (SRIP) and the Muscat - Suhar Product Pipeline (MSPP)," said Orpic in a statement.
"The supply of fuels and petrochemicals to the local market has been meticulously scheduled and secured to ensure smooth supply to the market. In cooperation with Oman Oil Marketing Company, Shell and Al Maha Petroleum, Orpic is using a number of logistical supply channels including sea shipping from Suhar Refinery to Mina Al Fahal Refinery and Al Jifnain Depot," it added.
