| The National Ferries Company (NFC) has entered into an agreement with Shell Oman Marketing Company for the supply of marine gas oil (MGO) to vessels calling at all Omani ports in which the ferry operator currently operates.|
The bunkering agreement between Shell Oman and NFC is for a period of three years.
NFC is owned by the government of Oman and offers high-speed ferry services between various locations along the Omani coast, including Muscat, Khasab, Lima, Shinas, Dibba and Masirah.
The company's two flagship catamarans, the 65-metre-long Shinas and Hormuz, were both delivered in 2008 and are each capable of reaching speeds of more than 55 knots.
Mehdi al Abduwani, chief executive officer of NFC, said: "We are delighted to ink the agreement with Shell Oman to replenish with bunkers to our fleet of vessels at all Oman ports. We are proud to be the unique operator of state-of-the-art high speed craft and ro-pax vessels in the region."
