Rotary Engineering have been awarded a construction contract for 12 storage tanks with a capacity of 450,000m3, that have been designed to latest and highest industry standards as part of a US$1 billion expansion project which will increase capacity by 50 per cent
ENOC Group have signed an agreement with Rotary Engineering Fujairah FZE to construct 12 new storage tanks as part of its plans to expand the capacity of its Jebel Ali refinery by 50 per cent.
The expansion project comprises three separate packages at an estimated value of US$1billion and the expected date for commercial production is Q4 of 2019. The second package of the expansion will also see the construction of a 31,000 sqft warehouse.
This follows the announcement of the major EPC contractor signing in September last year for the design and construction of new processing units and ancillary units.
The 12 new tanks are designed to meet the latest and highest industry standards to help maintain high product quality throughout the refinery’s logistics chain. The tanks are designed to store Jet fuel, Naphtha along with Gasoline blend stocks.
His Excellency Saif Humaid Al Falasi, Group CEO of ENOC, said: “Our US$1bn expansion project at the Jebel Ali refinery is a key part of the UAE’s downstream strategy to be self-sufficient in domestic fuels, as well as expanding the slate of products on offer for export. The production capacity of our Jebel Ali refinery is 140,000 bpd helping to meet the requirements of local, regional and international markets. With expansion, we hope to achieve an increased capacity of 210,000 bpd. This will help us address the needs of the market and the wider industry, which has witnessed considerable changes in recent times.”
Mr Roger Chia Kim Piow, Chairman and Managing Director of Rotary Engineering Limited commented, "Rotary is proud to be chosen by the ENOC Group to participate in its milestone project.
