Ras Markaz - Nahada Crude Oil Pipeline Project
This project involves construction of a 360-kilometre-long crude oil pipeline in Oman. The project involves the construction of a 360 km, 42-inch crude-oil pipeline to connect the storage terminal in Ras Markaz with the main line at Nahada in central Oman. The pipeline will run from Nahada to the Ras Markaz Crude Oil Park near Duqm in Wusta Governorate. It will include a 130 km pipeline that connects the Main Oil Line at Nahada with Saih Nihayda. Another 230 kilometers pipeline then channels the crude from Saih Nihayda to Ras Markaz. OTTCO will build a new crude oil pipeline that will link Oman's Main Oil Line in central Oman with the Ras Markaz Terminal. The pipeline, whose capacity will be determined as part of a broader study of the storage hub project, will travel from Nihayda to the Duqm coast. Nihayda is where Omani crudes pumped from different fields is collected and mixed to form the Oman blend before it is pumped via the Main Oil Line to Mina al Fahal for export. This proposed pipeline from Nihayda to Ras Markaz will also serve as a second export line for Omani export crude. Oman Tank Terminal Company LLC (OTTCO) has been set up by Oman Oil Company SAOC (OOC), the wholly government owned energy investment vehicle, in partnership with its downstream investment subsidiary, Takamul Investment Company. OTTCO is owned 90% by OOC and 10% by Takamul.
