May 2 – Oman Oil Marketing Company announced the appointment of WorleyParsons Engineering Oman as the project management consultants (PMC) for the Duqm Bunker Terminal Project. To be commissioned in early 2021, the terminal is expected to be a major driver in development goals for the Port of Duqm.
David Kalife, CEO, Oman Oil Marketing, said, “Oman Oil Marketing Company takes great pleasure in announcing the appointment of WorleyParsons as the new project management consultant for our Duqm Bunker Terminal Project. We are confident that WorleyParsons, which combine their global resources 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 work together towards the successful and timely execution of the project.”
The project will continue to enhance the Port’s premium service standards, improve cost effectiveness, and also 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 demands for Oman’s growing industries develop, we are actively 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 SEZAD goals for the port of Duqm and wider region. With increasing requests for bunker services and the expected increase of petroleum trading, the regional demand for these services is expected to surpass what is currently available. This project is part of Oman Oil Marketing Management’s long-term strategy to contribute and support our national growth and development,” said David Kalife, CEO of Oman Oil Marketing Company.
The development in this area will help building the local economy and stimulate economic growth. The company has provided bunkering services in the Port of Duqm since 2014 continuously and successfully supplies a wide variety of international marine customers, including commercial ships and military vessels. In line with its commitment to its customers, Oman Oil Marketing Company has developed four additional service stations in the Duqm area.
