Oman Downstream Exhibition & Conference

- 06 Apr 2017 OmanVisit Website

Global refining capital expenditure is forecast to reach approximately US$333 billion between 2014 and 2020, driven largely by new projects across China and the Middle East.

A recent study by research firm Global Data found that Asia will account for 46% of downstream capex during the period, while the Middle East will provide 22%. Testament to the planned construction of large integrated refining and petrochemical complexes that lead to more efficient grass-root refineries, such as cracking and coking facilities, refining expenditures in the Middle East and Asia are forecast to represent a combined 70% share of the world’s total spending.

With this trend set to continue, Oman is stepping up efforts to capitalize on its hydrocarbons wealth, boosting downstream industrial capacity by expanding the petrochemicals sector and providing the fuel stocks needed to power other industries, thus reducing its reliance on imports.
