OCTAL Petrochemical Expansion

OCTAL Petrochemicals LLC FZC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Octal Holding & Co. (SAOC), was established in 2006 to meet the accelerating demand for PET sheet and PET resins. OCTAL appointed Faithful+Gould to provide programme management services on the expansion of its petrochemical complex in Salalah, Sultanate of Oman.

Our role saw us delivering programme management services throughout the project life cycle, ensuring successful delivery to time, budget and quality objectives.

One of the key challenges was the extremely tight timescale, which meant our 20-strong team delivered the facility twice as fast as the previous phase. This ensured successful delivery to meet the critical milestone dates for mechanical completion and testing of the systems, in order that production could start on time.

The project has since won three MEED Quality awards for; National Oil and Gas Project of the Year Award, Sustainability Project of the Year Award and the GCC Oil and Gas Project of the Year Award.
