A quarter of the construction in the Duqm refinery has been completed, and it is supposed to be completed by 2022, Times of Oman reported.

The refinery is currently being completed in three bundles, two of which are under active construction.

The refinery will provide a variety of products, including kerosene, naphtha, liquified petroleum gas (LPG), sulfur, and diesel, which can then be either sold in the local and international markets.

“The refinery is currently 25% complete, with 7,500 people working on the construction at this point,” said Ahmed bin Khalfan, a process engineer at the refinery, “By next year, the number will rise to 25,000 people working on the construction,” he added.

It should be noted that the Duqm refinery was launched in April 2018 with around $7 billion investments. Duqm Refinery and Petrochemical Industries Company is a joint venture (JV) between Oman Oil Company (OOC) and Kuwait Petroleum International (KPI).
