Integration of Three Companies

Integration Process

Created from the integration of three companies - Oman Refineries and Petrochemicals Company LLC (ORPC), Aromatics Oman LLC (AOL) and Oman Polypropylene (OPP) - Orpic is one of Oman`s largest companies and is one of the rapidly growing businesses in the Middle East`s oil industry.

Our refineries at Suhar and Muscat, as well as our aromatics and polypropylene production plants in the Suhar complex, provide fuels, chemicals and feedstock to Oman and to the world.

Our team of more than 1,600 employees - the majority Omanis - work across these four plants with the common goal of building an integrated Omani refining and petrochemicals business which the nation is proud of.

That means a business which:

  • Operates safely and reliably, while paying due care to the environment
  • Delivers fuel to our nation and export products to our global customers
  • Delivers a financial return to our shareholders
  • Provides challenging and rewarding careers for our people
  • Continues to expand, with new investment and new operations adding to our strength.

Orpic is owned by the Government of the Sultanate of Oman and by Oman Oil Company SAOC, the commercial company wholly owned by the Government of the Sultanate of Oman created to pursue investment opportunities in the energy sector both inside and outside Oman.


Program APPLE was aimed at creating value by integrating the three companies ORPC, AOL and OPP. We wanted to improve the way we did things and align these processes across the three companies. We also wanted to have all our people from the three companies work together to jointly grow the organization.


We wanted to create opportunities for the people who worked in the three companies. Every employee is special; therefore we wanted to have a development plan for every single employee so everyone can unlock his or her potential. In fact we want to invest so much in our people that in 2015 we will be able to send 100 leaders from our existing staff to lead operating the Al Duqm refinery and petrochemical complex.
