ExxonMobil Launches Deliveries in Istanbul

Monday, May 16, 2005
EXXONMOBIL Marine Fuels (EMMF)has started delivering Marine Gas Oil (DMA) in Istanbul, Turkey. Operations, which began in March 2005, are carried out from the Cekmece terminal in Ambarli, which is about two hours from Kumkapi, the main anchorage area of Istanbul.

The main advantage of this location is shorter operational lead times, which helps to ensure timely deliveries to customers. The product is delivered by a contracted barge, the 'Kucukkoy', which has a capacity of 220 tons, and is operated by EB Petrol Ltd.

Charles Amyot, EMMF's Regional Manager for Southern Europe, said, "Istanbul is a key location, at the intersection of Europe and Asia, and the gateway between the Mediterranean and the Black Sea. It is therefore an important bunkering market, and ExxonMobil is delighted to be able to increase its involvement there."
