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.
