Jordan currently imports oil derivatives which require storage facilities to meet the demands of the local market during emergencies. The project aims to provide the needed storage capacities in order to maintain a strategic reservoir of oil derivatives that covers the country’s consumption needs for 60 days. It also aims to improve the oil sector’s infrastructure.
The project also includes building tanks with a floating ceiling to store oil derivatives (diesel, gasoline, and airplane fuel) with capacities ranging between 250,000 to 300,000 tons, in addition to 8,000 tons of LPG. In addition, the project is mandated to establish a loading and offloading area, security and fire resistance systems, a system to separate oils from water, and all other necessary equipment.
