An integrated energy giant

  • New entity: OQ was created with the merging of Oman Oil Company, state refiner Orpic and seven domestic energy players – an integration that began in 2018 and was expected to continue through 2020.
  • Component pieces: the seven firms include upstream player OOCEP, Oman Gas, Duqm Refinery and Petrochemicals Industries, Salalah Methanol, Oman Trading International, oxo intermediates and derivatives producer Oxea and Salalah Liquified Petroleum Gas.
