Expanding polymer horizons

Securing a sustainable future for polymers

OQ is primed to deliver reliable solutions that meet both local and global demand for polypropylene and polyethylene from our state-of-the art integrated refineries and petrochemical facilities.

Expanding polymer horizons

From providing safe flexible packaging for our favourite foods, enhancing the durability and quality of the bottles we use, and advancing sustainable solutions for the home and workplace, OQ is dedicated to optimising how polymers improve our daily lives.

We are a customer-focused, global energy provider, delivering sustainability and business excellence.

Together we make more possible
Together we make more possible
The Liwa Plastics Industry Complex (LPIC) is a transformational project aimed at supporting the development and diversification of Oman's downstream polymers industry, via the creation of value-added products derived from crude oil and natural gas.
Together we make more possible
Providing the Sultanate's first polyethylene (PE) plant, LPIC opens up new opportunities for Luban HDPE and LLDPE products. Also expanding the range of Luban polypropylene (PP) products, the new plant enables the country to take unprecedented advantage of the growing global polymer industry.
Together we make more possible
Polyethylene (PE) is one of the most high-demand plastics globally, as it's used to manufacture many of our everyday items such as plastic bottles, toys, and a wide range of applications in packaging, automotive, and electrical.

Together we make more possible

The LPIC plant introduces production levels of about 880 KTA of Luban PE to serve local and international markets. This capacity includes the production of 440 KTA of Luban HDPE and 440 KTA of Luban LLDPE.

Together we make more possible

In addition, LPIC’s 300 KTA of Luban PP increases OQ’s present PP capacity from 340 KTA to 640 KTA.

A big part of LPIC's story has been the in-country value approach — which means engaging with a local workforce and Omani suppliers, and focusing on integration, growth, and collaboration with our international partners, to make more possible.

Gateway to the world

Being strategically located in Oman allows OQ to accelerate delivery times in key global markets.

As the forecasted growth in demand for our PE and PP products will allow us to reduce the average lead time for product delivery in North East and South East Asia from the current 24 days, down to between 4-6 days.

This 19-day average reduction in lead time will vastly improve our service levels and optimise our opportunity as a neighbouring hub to 18% of the world’s population.
