There is a proposal to send a neutrino beam from the Protvino accelerator complex located in Russia to the detector facility called ‘Oscillation Research with Cosmics in the Abyss’ (ORCA) in the Mediterranean sea to study neutrino oscillation. This is called the P2O experiment which will have a baseline of 2588 km. In this paper we carry out an sensitivity study to extract the best possible physics sensitivity of the P2O experiment. In particular, we study the effect of antineutrino runs, the role of background as well as the impact of controlling the systematic uncertainties vis-a-vis the statistics.
