UAE storage provider Brooge Energy has reached a safety milestone, reporting 3.75 million hours worked without any safety issues, including no long-term injuries (LTI), no product spills and fulfilling all customer deliveries correctly.
Its subsidiaries Brooge Petroleum and Gas Investment Company (BPGIC) and Brooge Petroleum and Gas Investment Company Phase III (BPGIC III) operate an oil terminal outside the Strait of Hormuz, next to the Port of Fujairah in the UAE. Phase I of the terminal has a total capacity of 400,000 m3. Phase II has a total storage capacity of 601,600 m3. Work has begun on Phase III, which will take the total capacity of the terminal to 4.5 million m3.
‘We are proud to report no safety issues since the start of our Phase I operations in late 2017 and throughout the construction of our Phase II facility, which is nearing completion. Safety has always been paramount to the oil industry and the midstream sector is no exception. We believe our excellent safety record is due to strict adherence to compliance processes, as well as our investment in building out highly automated terminals which have continued to operate seamlessly throughout the year despite the restrictions placed on us due to COVID-19,’ says Nicolaas L. Paardenkooper, CEO of Brooge Energy and BPGIC.
Brooge Energy signed offtake contracts with three regional oil trading companies for the terminal in December 2020.
