Horizon Terminals Limited (HTL), a subsidiary of Emirates National Oil Company (ENOC), is set to commission a new oil terminal in Fujairah by end of this month
Designed to meet the growing demand for storing bulk liquid oil products such as fuel oil, naphtha, gasoline, gas oil, jet fuel and LPG, among others, the new terminal in Fujairah will become the sixth terminal of ENOC in the UAE, with another one being developed in Jebel Ali with a storage capacity of more than 1.4mn cubic metres.
Saeed Khoory, chief executive officer of ENOC, said, “The new oil terminal in Fujairah is of strategic importance to the energy sector of the region, and in further establishing the UAE as a key regional hub in the oil and gas trade.”
Located on the west side of the Fujairah-Khorfakhan Highway, the new Fujairah Oil Terminal is being built by Singapore-based engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contractor Audex Pte Ltd in 22 months.
The terminal will be linked directly to the Port of Fujairah oil tanker berths and will have 10 bays of tanker truck loading racks, associated facilities, an advanced maintenance workshop, and marine receipt and loading pump house.
