OOMCO to set up bunker terminal at Duqm Port

Oman Oil Marketing Company (OOMCO) has secured its board's approval for the construction of an in-port bunker terminal at the Port of Duqm on the sultanate’s Al Wusta coast, said a report.

The board’s green-light was received for 30,000 cu m of tankage capacity together with the required ancillary equipment and facilities, OOMCO recently noted in a filing to the Capital Market Authority (CMA), added the Oman Daily Observer report.

The bunker terminal will supply marine fuels of required grades to ships in and around the port. It will serve to enhance the portfolio of services available to attract ships to Duqm and thus contribute to the port’s growth and business development, it said.
