OTTCO exploits the geo-political value of Oman’s location and the strategic significance of Ras Markaz. Ras Markaz is located on Oman’s Indian Ocean coastline, 1000kms from the Straits of Hormuz, a potential choke point in the oil supply chain. Our location provides easy access to markets in South Asia, the Far East and Africa as well as land and sea access to producers in the Middle East.
Short & long term commercial storage. Strategic storage. Value-adding services including blending, and making bulk. 24/7 operations.
Ras Markaz is aiming to become a crude hub comparable to Rotterdam and Singapore.
OTTCO will provide centralised operations, maintenance and management. OTTCO’s wholly-owned facilities will sit alongside JV’s and sole venture storage. Shared infrastructure will provide OTTCO’s customers with advantages for their Capex, Opex and (operational) management.
Our values of transparency and trustworthiness are the cornerstones of all our relationships. We have a reputation for fairness, value and being a trusted long term partner. We adhere to recognised best practice for HSSE.
OTTCO has launched floating storage as an interim solution for its customers ahead of the commissioning of the Ras Markaz Crude Oil Park. Customers are able to store over 2 million barrels of Oman Export Blend Crude Oil on board a VLCC (Very Large Crude Carrier) at Mina Al Fahal, Muscat, Oman.
The flexible and dynamic nature of our floating storage facility is characteristic of the approach that we are taking to our onshore projects.
