Dubai’s Drydocks World has delivered a pair of calm buoys for the Ras Markaz Crude Oil Park Project off Oman’s port of Duqum.

The catenary anchor leg mooring calm buoys act as offshore floating hulls to transfer stabilised crude and refined hydrocarbon products while tethering large crude carriers to onshore terminals via up to 400 megatons hawser load.

The calm buoys will eventually be moored at a crude oil storage terminal off the coast of Oman.

Capt. Rado Antolovic PhD, ceo of Drydocks World, said: “Delivering another major project outcome for Bluewater Energy Services, China Petroleum Pipeline Engineering (Oman Branch) and Oman Tank Terminal Company, is testament to our continued partnership – I’m proud of the trust shown in the Drydocks World team to deliver for a key partner and look forward to collaborating again on future projects.”
