Additionally, the project’s development will feature unique attributes that will make it globally competitive as well as profitable for all, three partners. From market observation, the demand for petrochemicals will rise sharply as living conditions and human development advance especially within developing markets around Oman.

Post-production, the Petrochemical Complex at SEZAD in Oman will target growing markets that are working with clean technologies, and in construction, mobility, and energy transition. Furthermore, the facility will also target markets that are in the packaging, durable goods as well as healthcare industries.
While commenting on the project, Al Ajmi revealed that the project will deploy, state-of-the-art technologies, which will help minimize carbon footprint. Furthermore, the project’s advanced technologies will support a deeper commitment to high environmental standards. It will also support Oman’s development aspirations and extend to socio-economic impacts.
