Horizon Terminals, a subsidiary of Emirates National Oil Company (ENOC) has contracted India's Punj Lloyd to build a bulk oil terminal at Jebel Ali and lay a 60km jet fuel line to Dubai International Airport.
The deal covers the engineering, procurement and construction of the terminal inside the Jebel Ali Free Zone, handling a jet fuel system initially and other petroleum products at later stages. The terminal will have storage capacity of 141,00m3, or 887,000 barrels.
“This strategic project aims to further support the economic development of Dubai and the recently awarded terminal project in Fujairah, in line with ENOC's long term investment strategy,” said Saeed Abdullah Khoory, CEO at ENOC.
The 60 km pipeline will have a branch off point at the new Dubai World Central airport in anticipation of the future expansion.
"The Middle East is a very important market for us. Our strong focus on the region, complemented by our proven track record in the EPC domain has created a niche for Punj Lloyd in the region,” said Ravindra Kansal, president and CEO at Punj Lloyd MEA. “'With this contract win, we further our commitment and focus on the UAE.”
ENOC has a storage capacity of 1.2m m3 at Jebel Ali. The total storage capacity at the site runs to 3m m3.
