Port of Duqm offers state-of-the art port infrastructure, enabling efficient logistics and facilitating rapid movement of cargo within the country as well as internationally. An approach channel of -19m offers access to a linear quay of 2.2km in length with a -18m draft. This ‘commercial quay’ is equipped for handling all vessel types and hosts various cargo terminals for break bulk, dry bulk, over-dimensional cargo, and navy and container terminals. The liquid jetty of Port of Duqm enables export of bulk liquids and is integrated to the Duqm refinery for product exports.

The Duqm area serves Oman’s ambition in industrial diversification and the green energy future. In that regards enables Port of Duqm industrial development and investments on its leasable land for logistic and industrial activities.

Port of Duqm is operated by the Port of Duqm Company (PODC), a joint venture between the Government of Oman (represented by ASYAD Group) and a Belgian Consortium between Port of Antwerp-Bruges International and DEME Concessions, called Consortium Antwerp Port (CAP).
