Key leaders from the oil and gas sector came together to discuss and find solutions to support the industry’s growth and technical challenges during the third Oman Downstream Exhibition and Conference (ODEC) in Muscat. The conference focused on market trends, developments, projects, technology and innovation to drive the Sultanate’s refining and petrochemical potential.

The event served as a platform for leaders and engineers to demonstrate advanced solutions for refining and petrochemical projects. They also showcased tools to help drive the rapid expansion of Oman’s refining and petrochemical complexes.

Topics covered at the event included how to optimize and reconfigure refineries to allow for co-processing and alternative fuel production and how to transform naphtha and diesel into more valuable products.

98 exhibiting companies and 35 conference speakers took part in the three-day event, which was sponsored by Oman Oil Marketing Company (OOMCO). OOMCO’s digital journey was highlighted and cutting-edge technology was shown to reduce operating costs, maximize performance and increase efficiency, ultimately allowing OOMCO to elevate the customer experience. For example, relocating service stations or changing product offerings at existing stations by using analytics and finding out where demand is highest for various products.

“Introducing cutting-edge technologies is central to our strategy and we are currently looking at various ways to introduce smart services at our stations. Innovating to energize the customer journey by providing convenient and innovative products and services will remain a top priority at OOMCO”, expressed OOMCO’s CEO, David Kalife.
