Shell expands aviation fuel business in Oman

Shell Oman Marketing Company said it has expanded its operations in Duqm city of the sultanate with the supply of aviation fuel to Duqm Airport.

The company is uniquely positioned to deliver global fuel technology to local and international customers. Shell’s expertise in providing top quality fuels, and reliable, efficient and profitable operations, have been globally recognized since the advent of the jet age, said the company in a statement.

In 1962, Shell began selling aviation fuel in Oman from Bait Al Falaj Airport. In later years, with the opening of Seeb International Airport (today known as Muscat International Airport), Shell has become a major supplier of jet fuel, lubricants and consultancy services in the Omani aviation sector.

On the expansion, CEO Dr Mohammed Al Balushi said: "Shell Oman Marketing is uniquely positioned to deliver global fuel technology and operational excellence to local and international customers in Duqm."

We truly value our long-standing partnership with the key stakeholders in Oman’s aviation sector, which is evident from our position as the sole fuel farm operator at both Muscat and Salalah airports, and now with Shell Oman’s Aviation fuel business actively operating in Duqm," he added.
