New bunker barge deployed in Sohar

October 2015

Omanoil Matrix Marine Services (MXO), a supplier of marine fuel, has planned the expansion of its physical infrastructure in Oman with the deployment of a new bunker barge at Sohar Port and Freezone.

The new barge Stephanie with 7,535 deadweight tonnage (DWT) is providing both heavy fuel oil – IFO 380 RMG 2010 – and marine gas oil to customers at all locations within the Port of Sohar and anchorage areas.

MXO has two dedicated bunker barges within the port providing exclusive supply, following the earlier deployment of Azalea in August 2014.

The development is in line with the company’s strategy to expand its physical operations on a global basis, building closer relationships with its customers, and ensuring the highest quality of its bunkering services and products.

Stephen Robinson, managing director of MXO, said that developing the physical infrastructure helps MXO have more control over the end-to-end bunkering supply chain from order through to final delivery.
