Punj Lloyd bags Horizon Terminal deal from ENOC
Fujairah project includes jet fuel pipeline to Dubai's airports
Horizon Terminals, a subsidiary of Emirates National Oil Company (ENOC), has awarded an EPC contract to India-based construction conglomerate Punj Lloyd for a bulk oil terminal inside the Jebel Ali Free Zone in Dubai, together with a 60km jet fuel pipeline to Dubai International Airport.
Previously referred to as ‘Project Falcon,’ the facility will have state of the art oil terminal facilities with storage tank capacity of 141,000 cubic metres, including a tanker truck Loading system connected to the oil tanker berths and associated facilities.
The project value was not disclosed.
The oil terminal will handle a jet fuel system initially and other petroleum products at later stages. The proposed 60 km will have a branch off point at the new Dubai World Central (DWC) airport for future expansion.
Speaking at the contract signing function held recently, Saeed Abdullah Khoory, ENOC CEO, said that the strategic project aims to further support the economic development of Dubai and the recently awarded terminal project in Fujairah.
Mr Ravindra Kansal, President and CEO of Punj Lloyd, Middle East, Africa & CIS, said, “The Middle East is a very important market for us. Our strong focus on the region, complemented by our proven track record in the EPC domain has created a niche for Punj Lloyd in the region. With this contract win, we further our commitment and focus on the UAE.”
