The Refinery is based in Al Duqm which is located in the South East region, which is the Al Wusta Governorate of the Sultanate of Oman which is roughly 600 KM from Muscat.

The projects acts to reimburse the local economy of the area in particular while contributing heavily to the national GDP as a whole.
