Dubai, May 21, 2012
Gulf Petrochem Group, a leading player in the oil industry, will discuss plans to supply Khor Fakkan and Jebel Ali bunker market during its participation at an upcoming bunkering conference in Dubai.

“Gulf Petrochem’s mission to fortify its stronghold as a leading player in the oil space is fast gaining momentum and we are looking to support our expansion initiatives through our active participation in events such as RESCON,” he added.
Kalrav Dixit, Group trading manager at Gulf Petrochem will be one of the speakers at the conference and will discuss the impact of the changing quality of fuel and the impact of pricing trends.
Gulf Petrochem will also provide updates about its new Fujairah Oil Terminal, one of the key projects expected to fortify Gulf Petrochem’s stronghold in the regional market. The company has invested over $130 million to build the Fujairah Oil Terminal, which is expected to start operations in October with an initial capacity of 412,000 cu m. – TradeArabia News Service
