Minerva Bunkering has extended its Saudi Arabia Red Sea operations to accommodate boats calling at King Abdullah Port, having recently completed the port’s maiden bunker delivery.
Minerva has added a third barge, the 6,262 dead-weight tonnage (DwT) ‘MV Tilos’, to its fleet, supporting Yanbu, Jeddah, and now King Abdullah Ports.
Minerva CEO, Tyler Baron, said: “With King Abdullah Port located in between Yanbu and Jeddah we are able to leverage our integrated Red Sea supply system to provide customers with a highly competitive total cost of bunkers, both for deliveries to vessels concurrent with cargo operations and while at anchor.
Minerva Bunkering, a subsidiary of Mercuria Energy Group, is one of the biggest physical provider of marine fuels and related services to ships at sea and in port. The firm buys in bulk from various suppliers and distributes to approximately 750 active clients in all main commercial maritime sectors, including container ships, dry bulk carriers, cruise ships, tankers, and ferries.
