$320million invested on Muscat-Suhar pipeline

Muscat, August 8 – The total investments on the Muscat-Suhar Product Pipeline (MSPP) project has reached $320 million since inception in 2015, including $230 million worth of In-Country Value (ICV).
Al Jifnain Terminal is expected to cater to more than 50 per cent of the Sultanate’s fuel demand besides reducing truck movement within Muscat Governorate by 70 per cent and restoring the Al Jifnain Road which was affected by frequent movement of trucks.
The pipeline network is split into three sections — 40 km between Mina Al Fahal and Al Jifnain Terminal, 30 km between Al Jifnain Terminal and Muscat International Airport and 220 km between Suhar and Al Jifnain Terminal.
The new 18-inch pipeline between Sohar Refinery and Al Jifnain Terminal will ease the distribution of oil products along the North Coast, which accounts for 50 per cent of total domestic demand.
