In India at Kandla Port Trusts (KPT) offshore oil terminal in Jamnagar district at Vadinar a second jetty has been commissioned.
Essar Oil, which operates at the terminal, will use the jetty for exporting refined petroleum products from its refinery.
The new jetty has a capacity of 7 million tonnes. The first jetty was commissioned four years ago.
With commissioning of the second jetty, Essar Oil will be able to export 14 million tonnes finished petroleum products to international and domestic ports annually, KPT says.
Essar Oil has also set up a single point mooring (SPM) to unload large carriers of imported crude at Vadinar off shore oil terminal of KPT.
KPT's offshore oil terminal, set up in 1978 to import crude oil, is a satellite oil port which handles 30 million tonnes of oil a year, which is one-third of country's oil requirement.
