Distributor of multi-sector fuel and lubricant product Oman Oil Marketing Company (OOMCO) on Monday (17 October) said it has an agreement with bunker trading company O Bunkering to promote bunker fuels at the Port of Duqm. 

In conjunction with 22nd edition of Singapore International Bunkering Conference, also known as SIBCON 2022 – the world’s most important bunkering event, Oman Oil Marketing Company signed a cooperation agreement with O Bunkering to promote the marine bunkering services in the Port of Duqm.

Mr. Tarik Mohammed Al Junaidi, CEO of Oman Oil Marketing Company, said: “We work at Oman Oil Marketing Company to provide bunkering services for ships in all Omani ports, including the Port of Duqm, to which we have allocated the bunker fuel barge MT BRAVO to meet the increasing demand for high-quality bunker fuel. For local, regional and international ships, which in turn works to consolidate the reputation of the Sultanate of Oman as a world-class logistics hub.”

Ali Al Shibani, CEO of O Bunkering, said: “With our strategic partnership with Oman Oil Marketing Company, O Bunkering is working to provide high-quality services through a team of highly experienced professionals and provide the best solutions in an innovative and sustainable way in the marine and bunkering sector.”

This agreement contributes to national efforts in developing the logistics sector to make the Sultanate of Oman a highly competitive logistics centre and a hub for communication between the various countries of the world, by devoting efforts to enrich maritime activity in Oman, especially the service of supplying ships with bunker fuel in Omani ports.

It is expected that the number of international vessels coming to the Port of Duqm for bunker refuelling will increase as a result of the availability of bunkering services through various supply methods such as trucks, ex pipes and marine barge dedicated to refuelling ships such as MT BRAVO, said Oman Oil Marketing Company.
