TFG Marine’s Strategic Expansion

The firm made its first marine fuel delivery at the Port of Sohar with the “Margherita Cosulich” barge last week, marking its recent entry into the Middle Eastern market.

Global marine fuel supply and procurement firm TFG Marine on Friday (3 May) said it achieved a few firsts for its new operations in the Middle East.

The firm made its first marine fuel delivery at the Port of Sohar with the M/V Margherita Cosulich barge last week, marking its recent entry into the Middle Eastern market.

“Plus, it was our first bunkering operation with our customers OQ Trading and the debut of using an ISO 22192 certified mass flow meter for a marine fuel delivery at the Port of Sohar,” TFG Marine said in a social media post. 

TFG Marine Advances in Oman

“Many thanks to SOHAR Port and Freezone and to OQ Trading for their trust, OOMCO Marine Fuels & Solutions, and our dedicated barge operators at Fratelli Cosulich for joining us in this significant milestone.”

This came following TFG Marine announcing Margherita Cosulich’s supply barge was en route to its bunker fuel supply operation in Oman.

At the time, TFG Marine said it would be ready to serve shipping customers with VLSFO and LSGO in the Port of Duqm and SOHAR Port and Freezone over the coming weeks.

Manifold Times also reported that SOHAR Port and Freezone and TFG Marine signed an MoU agreement during International Energy Week in London to establish an international bunker fuel supply operation within the deep-sea port.

The port is strategically located in Sohar, Sultanate of Oman, close to the main shipping routes connecting the Gulf and the Indian subcontinent with the rest of the world.
