Port of Duqm has reached an agreement with downstream oil marketing firm, Shell Oman Marketing Company, for the development of fuel bunkering facilities and services.

Under the deal, the parties would establish a bunkering terminal to provide different grades of quality fuels and lubricants as well as other ancillary facilities to marine liners calling at the Port of Duqm.

“This new agreement with Shell Oman underlines the clear ambition of Port of Duqm to become a future bunker hub serving the entire region,” Reggy Vermeulen, CEO of Port of Duqm, added.

With new global bunker regulations coming into effect as from 2020, Port of Duqm said it plans “to take full advantage of its prime location as well as the availability of the right fuel specs and offer prime bunker services accordingly.”

Port of Duqm Company SAOC (PDC), a 50:50 joint venture between the Oman Government and Port of Antwerp Consortium, currently has a capacity of 100,000 to 200,000 TEUs, 4 million tonnes of dry bulk, and 1 million tonnes of project, break bulk and heavy lift cargos.
