Duqm refinery with an area of 9 km2, is located on the coast of the Arabian Sea, 600 km south of the capital of Oman and is part of the government’s plans for the development and exploitation of the area.

The production is going to start in 2022, with the capacity of process 230.000 barrels per day (bpd), in several process zones. Including hydrocracking, diesel hydrodesulfurization, hydrotreating and delayed coking. This together with sulphur recovery units, hydrogen generation and merox treatment.

The new facility will use a total of eight crude storage tanks with an 80 kilometres underground pipeline, as well as a new terminal for export products in the northern part of the port of Duqm, so it needs a very high electrical safety with guarantee anticorrosion and protection against dust in hazardous areas.



The task was based on the supply of corrosion resistant Atex cable glands for coke and sulphur handling system at the Duqm refinery.

To ensure the optimal operation with all the guarantees and certifications for hazardous areas, we supplied as solution our Atex armoured cable glands Glakor® brand, made AISI 316 stainless steel, guarantees the perfect operation in hazardous areas.

This product, together with our customized isolation switch and push button junction boxes, Luxorex-Contrex Series by Atex Delvalle, made of stainless steel and with wiring included for zones 1, 2, 21 and 22.
