Qatar Petroleum has made fuel oil bunkering solutions available for all vessels calling on Qatari ports to mediate the effects of the ongoing crisis in the region on its clients. 

The company will be catering for the majority of Qatar’s LNG vessel fleet and provide the service to other clients including Muntajat, Hamad Port, and potential free-on-board (FOB) clients of Qatar who load products such as crude oil, LPG, condensate and naphtha.

The vessel-borne fueling will be available for all vessels lifting any Qatari seaborne imports or exports. Bunkering operations will be managed in collaboration with WOQOD Marine, which is responsible for the sale and delivery of fuel oil utilizing ship to ship transfer operations.

Commenting on the fueling facility, Saad Sherida Al-Kaabi, the president and CEO of Qatar Petroleum, said that the “unfortunate ongoing crisis” impacted the company’s clients and that Qatar Petroleum decided to assist its clients by “introducing measures to ensure the continuous and reliable energy supplies.”

Al-Kaabi added that the temporary ship-to-ship bunkering facility will be deployed until a permanent solution is implemented with the company fast-tracking required studies and investments.
