The Oman Oil Marketing Company has selected WorleyParsons Engineering Oman as project management consultants for the company’s Duqm Bunker Terminal development which is scheduled for commissioning by early 2021.
“Oman Oil Marketing Company takes great pleasure in announcing the appointment of WorleyParsons as the new project management consultant for our Duqm Bunker Terminal Project,” says David Kalife, CEO, Oman Oil Marketing, as quoted by the Oman Daily Observer.
“We are confident that WorleyParsons, which combine their global resources experts with management and technical consultants to work towards fully integrated solutions, will ensure that technically sound and cost-effective infrastructure solutions are implemented.
“We are looking forward to work together towards the successful and timely execution of the project.”
The Duqm Bunker Terminal will be able to improve the services offered at Duqm port and support regional growth.
“As demands for Oman’s growing industries develop, we are actively there to meet their needs,” adds Kalife.
“As an early investor in the storage terminal business at the port, we are excited to be a part of the new business and economic growth that will manifest from the investment.
“We strongly support the Government and SEZAD goals for the port of Duqm and wider region.
“With increasing requests for bunker services and the expected increase of petroleum trading, the regional demand for these services is expected to surpass what is currently available.
“This project is part of Oman Oil Marketing Management’s long-term strategy to contribute and support our national growth and development.”
