Delta Rubis Ceyhan Termınal Welcomed The Fırst Vessel To Call At Its New Jetty On 03 August 2015
“We are proud to successfully complete our newest jetty investment and welcomed the first two vessels to our Ceyhan Terminal, as four types of cargo (ULSD, Gas oil, Fuel Oil and VGO) loading operations began at our new Jetty on August 03, 2015. Ceyhan Terminal will support customers to seize new opportunities and with its newest jetty addition, it will become a truly global oil hub in the Med to service the competitive trading environment with growing vessel sizes” Mr. Sami Habbab, CEO of Delta Rubis, said, adding that “Delta Rubis believes in the high potential of the Ceyhan, which has become a crossroad for pipelines and interconnects the hinterland region to service international oil trading activity. Today, the Terminal has grown to become the largest independent storage facility in the Mediterranean, with a capacity of 650,000 cubic meters of storage for white and black products as well as crude oil. This new jetty investment paves the way to grow Terminal’s capacity to reach a capacity of 1 million cbm in the very near future.
The Jetty Facility will transform the Terminal into a world class oil storage hub, enabling the long haul vessel traffic accommodation, offering a faster, flexible and a more diverse operational capability. With the new Jetty commissioned, Delta Rubis will be able to build and break bulk large vessel cargoes from outer Mediterranean region, increase its vessel throughput volume capability, offer blending capability to service the various diverse product specification requirement, increase the handling of smaller coaster vessels for regional bunker deliveries and domestic and nearby regional supply markets. The jetty was designed in such way as to offer possibility for future planned growth on the pipe rack, with capability to add new lines for all additional liquid bulk products, as well as LPG and LNG.
As a result of its larger lot handling capability with the new jetty, Delta Rubis is now planning to embark on the building of an additional 350,000 cbm of tankage capacity, which is readily available with permits to build within its terminal area. Therefore, Delta Rubis is looking for term commitment from its clients, who are interested to build a bigger base for their global oil trading platform.
Delta Rubis Ceyhan Terminal is now ready to service its clients with a 2.3 km jetty with six berths, accommodating vessels up to max. displacement of 230,000 tons, with current draft of 16.50 m and LOA of 287 m, with 24 hrs berthing capability.
