The completion of Project Black Pearl, expanding Vopak Horizon Fujairah’s capacity to store crude oil, makes it one of the largest independent oil terminals in the world
Vopak Horizon Fujairah proudly holds the accolade for the first independent crude oil capacity in the Middle East with open access and VLCC access.
Following the completion of its 7th expansion phase, known as Project Black Pearl, the facility, which started operations in 1998, now boasts a total storage capacity of 2.6 million m3.
The expansion exclusively focused on crude oil storage and added 478,000 m3 of storage spread across five tanks. The project also involved the addition of one manifold and a pipeline connection to the VLCC jetty as well as other jetties in the Port of Fujairah. All crude oil handled in the new tanks will
be loaded and discharged through the jetties of the Port of Fujairah. The port opened a new VLCC jetty in September 2016 and the terminal was the launching customer for it.
