ENOC's jet fuel pipeline linking its storage terminals in Jebel Ali to Al Maktoum International Airport in Dubai South is due to be operational in the first quarter of 2020.
Construction on the 16.2km pipeline has exceeded 20% and it is due to be complete in time for Dubai Expo 2020. Once complete, the pipeline will carry 2,000 m3 of jet fuel per hour to Al Maktoum International Airport, which is billed to be the world's largest, and will help meet the demand for aviation services from a significant proportion of the international visitors to the expo.
Hi Excellency Saif Humaid Al Falasi, group CEO of ENOC, says: 'The jet fuel pipeline connecting to Al Maktoum International Airport is one project that reiterates our commitment to elevate our country's key infrastructure. The completion of the project will strengthen the supply of jet fuel to Al Maktoum International Airport and meet the needs of airlines connecting the city to the world.'
The pipeline will meet the demand for jet fuel at Dubai Airports up until 2050. ENOC currently supplies jet fuel to Dubai International Airport through two jet fuel pipelines.
