Expansion of Black Pearl project in Fujairah inaugurated

Vopak0K2A8407 gifThanks to its strategic geographic location, Fujairah is playing an increasing significant role in the regional and global oil trade and bunkering, said H.H. Sheikh Hamad bin Mohammed Al Sharqi, Supreme Council Member and Ruler of Fujairah.


‘’Fujairah is expanding its oil terminal storage capacity to cater to the demand of global companies,’’ HH Sheikh Hamad said in the light of the inauguration of the seventh expansion phase of Vopak Horizon Fujairah Limited’s Black Pearl project on Thursday 3rd November.


The Black Pearl project is a collaboration between Vopak Horizon Fujairah and the Port of Fujairah where Vopak Horizon Fujairah built the new tanks and the Port of Fujairah constructed a VLCC jetty for the world’s largest tankers.


The completion of the construction of five crude oil tanks with a total capacity of 478.000 cubic metre, a manifold, a substation and connection to the new very large crude carrier jetty at the Port of Fujairah will lift the storage capacity of Vopak Horizon Fujairah to 2.6 million cbm.


The construction took close to two years and was successfully delivered on time with a excellent safety performance.  


Vopak Horizon Fujairah Limited is a joint venture of Royal Vopak, Horizon Terminals Ltd - wholly owned by Emirates National Oil Company (ENOC), the Government of Fujairah and Kuwait’s Independent Petroleum Group.
