Indian contractor building Jebel Ali bulk terminal and pipeline connecting to Dubai airport
India-based Punj Lloyd has won a contract from Dubai’s state-owned Horizon Terminals to build an oil terminal and jet fuel pipeline in the emirate.
The deal covers the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) of a bulk oil terminal in Jebel Ali Free Zone along with a 60-kilometre (km) pipeline to Dubai International airport.
Punj Lloyd was selected ahead of several bidders including Dubai’s Arj Engineering, Dodsal and Athens-based Consolidated Contractors Company (CCC).
The project’s scope includes oil terminal facilities with a storage capacity of 141,000 cubic metres, with a tanker truck loading system connected to oil tankers berths and other facilities. The terminal is expected to handle other petroleum products in the future.
Formerly known as the Dubai Falcon, the proposed pipeline will branch off at Dubai World Central (DWC) airport for future expansion.
Horizon Terminals is a subsidiary of oil group Emirates National Oil Company (Enoc), a wholly owned company of the Dubai government.
