ENOC Bunkering International LLC (EBIL), a wholly-owned subsidiary of ENOC, has resumed its offshore bunker supply operations in Fujairah and plans to soon commence making bunker deliveries in Jebel Ali.

The company, which operates under ENOC’s International Refining and Marketing (IRM) division and until recently has been operating its onshore bunker services in the UAE market, says it has a strong service support system and ample storage facilities that are able to meet current market requirements. EBIL also has its own refinery and an extensive fleet of supply tankers for product delivery and discharge.

Saeed Abdullah Khoory, ENOC Group Chief Executive, said “Our operations underscore the UAE’s continued growth in maritime traffic and the increased demand for bunkering fuel. We have several contracts in place with leading suppliers of fuel oil to ensure 100 percent product availability. Though we currently operate only in the UAE, we have ambitious plans to expand internationally in the long-term.”

With quality as a top priority, the company said "EBIL’s bunkering operations follow ENOC’s highest environmental, health and safety (EHS) standards. They are compliant with the EHS standards prescribed by all international regulatory bodies."

“We will maintain continuity of supply and constant product upgrading to meet market demand and the different requirements of Original Equipment Manufacturers. We will also ensure that the supply of products meets the standard lead time,” added Khoory.

The company is able to offer 380-centistoke (cst) and 180-centistoke fuel, along with marine gas oil (MGO) at Fujairah.

EBIL says it has qualified staff on-call 24 hours a day to ensure prompt response to customer requirements. They are accessible via email at bunkersales@enoc.com.
