Developed in line with the marine safety fuel measures, the new services are expected to play an integral role in the overall growth and development of the Port of Duqm and Special Economic Zone at Duqm (SEZAD).

David Kalife, CEO of Oman Oil Marketing Company, said, “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. 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 further noted that the company is planning 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,” he said.

Reggy Vermeulen, CEO of Port of Duqm, remarked, “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.”

Looking towards a promising future, the company focuses on reinforcing its position as a partner of choice and contributing to Oman’s economic and social advancement by advancing upstream and downstream industries.
