Major Operations

The proposed liquid bulk terminals would have 4 major operations, which include:

Berth and vessel activities: These activities comprise the berth availability and berth limitations on vessel capacity. These limitations are particularly important where vessel draft is concerned.

Ship loading or discharge: Loading Liquid bulk cargo using pumps located on the pier; discharge shall be accomplished through the use of ships pumps.

Storage: Liquid bulk cargo shall be stored in the refurbished and newly constructed tanks near the terminal. The storage component of liquid bulk shall also include value-added activities such a blending or processing. Intermodal transfer and inland distribution - Liquid bulk cargo shall be distributed by rail, truck or pipeline. The capacities of these modes determine the total storage required

Project major milestones: Mechanical Integrity assessment and Fitness for service assessments of the complete fleet of existing storage tanks as per International standards API 653 and API 579. Refurbishment and reconstruction of repairable tanks including all instrumentation & control, electrical and mechanical systems.

Demolition of unrepairable tanks and construction of allied infrastructure like access roads, loading bays, pipelines, jetty etc.

Construction and commissioning of new tanks as per API 650 standard. Operationalization of Liquid bulk terminal for Storage and Trading of petroleum products on long term basis, under the lease and licensing agreement with the Client.

Viability analysis:

Country lies on the key East-West trade route and possesses the essential location advantage needed for it to develop into a key logistics hub in South Asia.The proposed terminal can serve the local energy demand gaps as well as of neighboring countries. Countries economic growth has been increasing in the past years.

International oil and gas energy reports in south Asia, states demand for crude oil and refined petroleum products has been growing over the past decade, and, the country's demand for oil increased dramatically surprising many energy analysts. The changing petroleum requirements are closely related to its high rates of growth in economic output and personal incomes.The growth in income & the resulting changes in petroleum demand are themselves driven by an on-going population shift from rural to urban areas.

The growing urban population demands new vehicles and new roads, raising the demand for energy in the transportation sector.
