Consultant appointed for Duqm Bunker Terminal Project

The Oman Oil Marketing Company announced the appointment of WorleyParsons Engineering Oman as the project management consultants for the Duqm Bunker Terminal Project to be commissioned in early 2021.

“We are confident that WorleyParsons, which combine their global resource experts with management and technical consultants to work towards fully integrated solutions, will ensure that technically sound and cost-effective infrastructure solutions are implemented. We are looking forward to working together towards the successful and timely execution of the project,” said David Kalife, CEO of Oman Oil Marketing Company.

The project will enhance the port’s premium service standards, improve cost effectiveness, and create efficient fuel supply and delivery to all customers within Duqm. This, in turn, will support the growth of the regional economy as part of the company’s commitment to establishing long term In-Country Value.

“As Oman’s growing industries develop, we are there to meet their needs. As an early investor in the storage terminal business at the port, we are excited to be a part of the new business and economic growth that will manifest from the investment. We strongly support the government and the Special Economic Zone in Duqm’s (Sezad) goals for the port of Duqm and the wider region,” he said.

 “With increasing requests for bunker services and the expected increase in petroleum trading, the regional demand for these services is expected to surpass what is currently available. This project is part of the company’s long-term strategy to contribute to and support our national growth and development,” added Kalife.

The development in this area will help build the local economy and stimulate economic growth. The company has been providing bunkering services in the Port of Duqm since 2014 and supplies to a wide variety of international marine customers, including commercial ships and military vessels. In line with its commitment to customers, Oman Oil Marketing Company has developed four additional service stations in the Duqm area.
