Our History

OXEA started in March 2007 as a buyout of oxo derivatives and oxo intermediates businesses from two international chemical companies. Since December 2013 OXEA is part of Oman Oil Company (OOC).

Based on OXEA’s platform, OOC plans to expand its chemicals portfolio. OOC has access to competitive raw materials and due to its geographic location, is a gateway to the Asian market, giving OXEA the opportunity of further development in these emerging markets.

OXEA is a young company whose roots date back to 1918 and was part of a number of renowned predecessor companies (see image).

We are proud of our long-time experience in the production of oxo chemicals. Even today, chemical processes are being developed by our predecessors and have been optimized for many years. This experience has enabled us to develop our core competencies and proprietary technologies across the entire oxo intermediates and oxo derivatives value chain.
