Oman Oil Marketing Company has started its fuel bunkering operations by barge at Port of Duqm as part of its drive to expand ship-to-ship services in the Sultanate’s maritime logistics hubs.

Developed in line with the most stringent international environment and marine safety fuel measures, the new services will play an integral role in the overall growth and development of the Port of Duqm and Special Economic Zone at Duqm (Sezad).

“Our fuel bunkering facilities at the Port of Duqm substantially elevate our ability to meet the needs of the shipping industry and provides us with a valuable foothold in one of the region’s most important maritime projects. To date, we have delivered over 3,000 tonnes of bunker fuel oil to major customers in the Port of Duqm,” David Kalife, CEO of Oman Oil Marketing Company, said.

“These developments have established a firm foundation for the future growth of our operations in Duqm, which will help expand the range of solutions and infrastructure available for ships looking for world-class solutions in Oman,” he added.

Kalife said, “Over the next few years, we will be moving ahead with plans to develop a full-fledged bunker supply facility at the Port of Duqm. This is part and parcel of our long-term strategy to contribute to the national growth and development of the country by serving the growing needs of industries across Oman.”

“As the engine of Oman’s long-term economic growth, it is imperative for us to identify the right partners that will propel our vision for the country forward. Together with Oman Oil Marketing Company’s new barge services, we are in a position to better serve the continuous flow of commercial and cargo vessels coming into our port,” Reggy Vermeulen, CEO of Port of Duqm, said.

Looking towards a promising future, Oman Oil Marketing Company is committed to reinforcing its position as a partner of choice and contributing to Oman’s economic and social advancement by innovating, enriching and advancing all upstream and downstream industries. Since inception, the company has fully aligned its ambitions with the country’s developments, driving the progress of both Oman and company for years ahead.
