Casting New Opportunities in Plastic
The Orpic refinery at SOHAR produces significant volumes of naphtha and propylene, which serve as feedstock for adjoining aromatics and polypropylene plants. The aromatics plant has the capacity to produce 818,000 tonnes per year of paraxylene, and 198,000 tonnes of benzene annually. The polypropylene plant produces 340,000 tonnes, making SOHAR an attractive proposition for plastics.
