OOMCO Directors approve construction of Duqm bunker terminal

16 May 2019

The Board of Directors at Oman Oil Marketing Company (OOMCO) on Monday (13 May) formally approved the construction of an in-port bunker terminal of 30,000 cubic meters of tankage capacity, together with required ancillary equipment and facilities, at the Port of Duqm.

“This bunker terminal will supply marine fuels to required grade to ships in and around the port,” they said in a statement.

“As such our bunker terminal will serve to enhance the portfolio of services available to attract ships to Duqm and thus contribute to port growth and business development.”

OOMCO in December signed an agreement with Shell Oman Marketing Company to develop fuel bunkering facilities and services at the Duqm bunker terminal.

The company has selected WorleyParsons Engineering Oman as project management consultants the Duqm Bunker Terminal development which is scheduled for commissioning by early 2021.
