Project: Ras Markaz Oil Storage Terminal
Clients: Instinctif Partners/OTTCO
Location: Ras Markaz/Muscat, Oman
Deliverables: Promotional film for investors and online
Dubai’s Instinctif Partners, the business communications consultancy, commissioned media971 to produce a film for their clients OTTCO, The Oman Tank Terminal Company. OTTCO were planning a huge oil storage terminal on the south coast of Oman to attract tankers from around the world.
Our problem was that the site was still virtually untouched – an empty stretch of cliff above the Indian Ocean. We needed to explain how the terminal would look and operate, and why its location was perfect for the global oil trade.
We visited the site to shoot video but also captured hundreds of still images, allowing our partners Glue VFX to create spectacular high-quality animations. They explained the storage plan, the connections to offshore tankers and the plant’s ability to pump and receive supplies.
We also filmed in the capital Muscat and off the coast, before bringing video and animations together in a short, powerful film promoting this ambitious scheme to investors.
