To spearhead of its growth, Gulf Petrochem has commissioned the phase-1 of its Port Storage Terminal facility at Fujairah with a capacity of 412,000 cbm and has commissioned the construction of storage terminal in the Indian Sub-continent.
Fujairah is strategically located outside the Strait of Hormuz, 65 miles from the strait and on the open sea of the Arabian Gulf and the Indian Ocean. The region is highly safe in the time of war crisis or threats of war and totally free of piracy risks. Being in the international shipping route, almost 40,000 ships annually pass to and from the gulf. Little wonder that Fujairah is the third largest bunkering centre in the world after Rotterdam and Singapore.
Fujairah Offshore Anchorage Area is characterized by it’s deep water, close to the shore and with smooth sea bed, free of coral reefs or rocks. Thus Gulf Petrochem will have an ideal platform to provide independent storage services for its liquid petroleum products to their customers, in a very professional and safe environment.
