A new oil storage terminal project has been announced in the Bahamas by Oban Energies.
TECS Netherlands has been awarded a contract for the FEED work for the facility, which will provide storage for crude oils, residual fuel oils, middle and light distillates, specialty vegetable oil and heavy oils. The facility will also consider all other bulk liquid storage requests.
It will commence with an initial capacity of four million barrels, with plans to expand capacity to 20 million barrels by the fourth year of operation.
TECS has been contracted to design the facility to allow all design aspects to meet the EIA and EMP project approval stages.
The preliminary contact awarded covers the entire terminal engineering scope, from VLCC-jetty and piping to inland support vessel harbour, storage tanks, terminal lay-out and all auxiliary facilities such as water and waste water facilities, vapour treatment and power generation.
