Our Portfolio

LNG Shipping 

Asyad’s evolution as one of the world’s fastest growing national shipping lines began with a modest fleet of LNG ships. Through the acquisition of ownership stakes in existing carriers, Asyad operated a total of six LNG ships to support the transportation of LNG produced at Qalhat, on the Sultanate’s east coast, to markets around the world. 

Crude Oil and Product Shipping

With 17 VLCCs, 15 Product Tankers, Asyad’s fleet of product carriers accounts for more than half of the company’s national fleet. It’s a reflection of the significant upturn in liquid cargoes, including crude, refined petroleum fuels, and petrochemicals, being generated by the nation’s largely hydrocarbon-centric economy, underpinned by the major industrial and petrochemical clusters established at Sohar, Salalah and Duqm. 

Container Shipping

Connecting Omani ports with those in the Arabian Gulf is a key objective of Asyad’s strategy to spur stronger trade ties between the Sultanate and the wider region. In line with this goal, a dedicated liner operation in the shape of Oman Container Line (OCL) was introduced in 2010. 

Dry Bulk Shipping

A growing number of Oman’s metallurgical projects currently depend on Asyad’s modern vessels to either freight in their raw materials and ship out their refined products and finished goods.
