Oman Oil Marketing Company has commenced a ship-to-ship bunker supply service at the port of Duqm.

The company says it has already delivered more than 3,000 metric tonnes of bunker fuel since the launch of the new physical operation, and it already has plans to develop a bunker supply facility at the Omani port in the future.

"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," said David Kalife, CEO of Oman Oil Marketing Company.

"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.

Comenting on the company's plans for the future, Kalife remarked: "Over the next few years, we will be moving ahead with plans to develop a fully 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."

Reggy Vermeulen, CEO of Port of Duqm, said: "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."
