GENEVA, 10 August 2023 – Minerva Bunkering has expanded its Saudi Arabia Red Sea operations to serve vessels calling King Abdullah Port, having now performed the first bunker delivery ever conducted in the port. Situated at the crossroads of global trade routes interlinking three continents, King Abdullah Port is amongst the world’s fastest growing ports.  Consistent with this expansion, Minerva has added a third barge, the 6,262 DwT MV Tilos, to its fleet supporting Yanbu, Jeddah, and now King Abdullah ports.
