Swiss oil company, majority-owned by private investment group AOG, Oryx Energies on Monday (15 April) announced a recent acquisition of a majority stake in South African Marine Fuels (SAMF), a bunkering company in Algoa Bay, Eastern cape, South Africa.

“Thanks to its integration into Oryx Energies, SAMF will foster its active contribution to the local industry development and will pursue investing in local talents, in particular black women, and skills development,” it states.
“Oryx Energies is one of Africa’s largest and longest-established independent providers of oil and gas products and services.
“An energy division of private investment group AOG, Oryx Energies has been present in South Africa since 2002.”
