A shipload of Das blend crude oil has reached New Mangalore port, the company said in a statement.

An agreement signed in February between Dr. Sultan bin Ahmad Sultan Al Jaber, Minister of State and ADNOC Group CEO on the UAE side and Shashi Shekhar, Chairman and Managing Director of ONGC on the Indian side, granted a 10 percent concession in the Lower Zakum field to an Indian consortium, led by OVL.

Mangalore Refinery and Petrochemicals Ltd, which will pick up the consignment from Mangalore port is an ONGC Group company in the downstream business which operates one of India's most modern and complex refineries, according to the statement.
