Fuel marketing company Oman Oil Marketing Company (OOMCO) on Thursday (6 January) said it has successfully conducted bunkering operations at the Port of Sohar where its barge MT Alpha supplied the vessel Sohar LNG at the Sohar Anchorage.
The development marks the launch of bunkering operations at the Port of Sohar, where OOMCO will be supplying bunker fuel oil and low sulphur marine gas oil, states OOMCO.
“This is also an important step in the expansion of our network of bunkering services at all major ports in the Sultanate of Oman. This follows the recent launch of bunkering at the Port of Duqm, earlier this month,” it wrote in a social media update.
“We look forward to developing our bunkering capabilities at the Port of Sohar and across the Sultanate of Oman, taking advantage of our strategic location close to international shipping lanes, availability of high-quality fuel products, competitive pricing, and a wide range of other ship services.”
