The pipe rack is for a gas export pipeline in the Sultanate of Oman. The total length of the pipe rack is 300 kilometers and it goes from Fahud to Sohar. It is a part of the Sohar Refinery Improvement project. The order comprises of more than 25,000 pcs of HPKM® and PEC® Column Shoes, COPRA® Anchoring Couplers, and more than 500 tons of customized embedded connection items. The deliveries have started in April 2017 and will continue until the end of 2017.
The developer of the project is ORPIC, Oman Oil Refineries & Petroleum Industrial Complex, owned by the government of Oman.
