SOHAR BUNKERING SERVICE GETS UNDERWAY

Oman Oil Marketing Company (OOMCO) has launched a new bunkering operation at the Port of Sohar, with its barge, MT Alpha, supplying the LNG carrier, Sohar LNGat the Sohar Anchorage earlier this month.

In future, OOMCO will be supplying bunker fuel oil and low sulphur MGO at Sohar, as part of plans to expand its network of bunkering services at all major ports in Oman. This latest operation follows the recent commencement of marine fuel operations by OOMCO at the Port of Duqm.

A statement from the company said, “We look forward to developing our refuelling capabilities at Sohar Port and across Oman, leveraging our strategic position near international shipping corridors, providing high quality fuel products at competitive prices, and a wide range of other ship services.”
