Oman Methanol to supply Sohar Refinery

Oman Methanol Co has signed an agreement to supply the Sultanate's flagship Sohar Refinery with its methanol requirements, Oman Daily Observer has reported. The refinery will tap into supplies from Oman Methanol's 3,000 tonnes per day complex via a proposed pipeline network that will link the two world-scale plants. The move will effectively end Sohar Refinery's dependence on imported methanol - a key ingredient in the production of the octane-booster TAME (Tertiary Amyl Methyl Ether) used as an additive in the production of motor fuel.
