A newly commissioned jetty at Delta Rubis’ Ceyhan Terminal will transform the facility into a world class oil storage hub.
The jetty allows the company to build and break bulk large vessel cargoes from the outer Mediterranean region, increase its vessel throughput volume capability and offer blending capabilities. Additionally it will increase the handling of smaller coaster vessels for regional bunker deliveries and domestic and nearby regional supply markets.
The design of the jetty allows for further growth on the pipe rack in the future, with the ability to add new lines for all additional liquid bulk products, as well as LPG and LNG.
As a result, Delta Rubis is now planning to embark on the construction of an additional 350,000 m3 tankage capacity. Permits are in place to build within the terminal area and the company is looking for a term commitment from its clients.
Sami Habbab, CEO, says: ‘We are proud to successfully complete our newest jetty investment and welcomed the first two vessels to our Ceyhan Terminal as four types of cargo (ULSD, gas oil, fuel oil and VGO).
‘Delta Rubis believes in the high potential of the Ceyhan, which has become a crossroad for pipelines and interconnects the hinterland region to service international oil trading activity.
‘This new jetty investment paves the way to grow the terminal’s capacity to reach a capacity of one million m3 in the very near future.’
