The Pakistan-based company, Ocean Bunkers, which currently supplies marine fuels to vessels in the ports of Karachi and Port Qasim, is poised to extend the scope of its physical bunker supply operations to the UAE.
The company has been granted a license to operate in the UAE and has established a new subsidiary, called Ocean Straight Run Fuel Supply Services, in Dubai. Operations at the Dubai office, located in Deira, will commence from July 1st.
Ocean Straight Run plans to supply bunker fuel to vessels calling at a number of UAE ports, including Jebel Ali, Khorfakkan, Sharjah and Hamriyah. It will initially focus on the delivery of low sulphur marine gasoil, marine gasoil, IFO 180 CST and IFO 380 CST type bunkers.
