The first cargo of bitumen has been delivered by Puma Energy to its terminal in Calabar, south east Nigeria.
The cargo was delivered by MT Acacia Rubra, which completed the discharge to the terminal, a joint venture with Wabeco Petroleum, registered as P.E. Bitumen Resources (Nigeria), on September 5.
The delivery will assist the Nigerian Government’s effort in rebuilding its road infrastructure, which is a catalyst for the country’s economic development.
Olof Klintholm, Puma’s global head of Bitumen, says: ‘Nigeria is a key focus market for us as we keep building our global presence and it shows we can deliver bitumen on specification and on time anywhere across the world.’
