About OQ Chemicals
OQ Chemicals (the former OXEA) is a global chemical company with a core competence in the production and sale of oxo chemicals. Our portfolio includes over 70 products supplied to customers. These products are used for the production of coatings, lubricants, cosmetics, printing inks, and much more.
There have been changes at OXEA since 2020: the company now belongs to the OQ Group, an integrated energy company. How did this come about?
Since as far back as December 2013, OXEA has been part of the Oman Oil Company (OOC), a company wholly owned by the Government of Oman. The integration of the two Omani companies, Oman Oil Company and ORPIC, together with their respective companies and equity interests, has been taking place since December 2018. This included OXEA as one of the core companies.
