Oman Drydock Company S.A.O.C. (ODC) has been established in September 2006 by the Government of Sultanate Oman (GOSO) with its 100% stake under the Master Plan of Duqm area which is propelling by GOSO to aim diversification of industry structure and regionally balanced growth in Oman.

The two drydocks are sized to accommodate and repair V.L.C.C., one of the most frequent navigators in the Middle East or L.N.G. Carrier, together with a handy-sized vessel simultaneously at the same time. Also, the latest dock operation pump system has been adopted in design to fill or drain the docks within 3 to 5 hours so that turnover rate of dock operation can be optimized. Jib cranes with maximum lifting capacity of 100 tons are arranged in order to shorten the process of repair or conversion work for large vessels by allowing the use of larger blocks.
Convenience in berthing and mooring operation has been emphasized in the design of quay structures for consideration of frequent movement of vessels in the drydock and quay areas, and jib cranes with boom length greater than 70m are installed to provide crane support in case of simultaneous berthing of two vessels.
Also for Dolphin quay, since tank blasting and painting works mainly take place in this area, efforts were made in structural arrangement for efficient operation of painting equipments. Jib cranes with length of 70m are installed on the Quay Nos. 3 and 4 for simultaneous operation of crane that allow maximum crane support.
Slop processing facilities and wastewater treatment systems are planned in the Quay No.5 area to enhance the tank cleaning work and various oily water treatment works for tankers.
