Punj Lloyd, an India-based construction conglomerate has bagged a contract from Horizon Terminals, a subsidiary of Emirates National Oil Company (ENOC) to build oil terminal. The deal covers the engineering, procurement and construction of a bulk oil terminal inside the Jebel Ali Free Zone along with a 60 kilometre jet fuel pipeline to the Dubai International Airport.

Previously referred to as ‘Project Falcon,’ it will have state of the art oil terminal facilities with storage tanks capacity of 141,000 cubic metres, including a Tanker Truck Loading system connected to the oil tanker berths and associated facilities. The oil terminal will handle a jet fuel system initially and other petroleum products at later stages. The proposed 60 km pipeline running from the Jebel Ali Free Zone to the Dubai International Airport will have a branch off point at the new Dubai World Central (DWC) airport for future expansion.

Established in 1993 as a wholly-owned company of the Government of Dubai, ENOC aims to promote the interests of its shareholders through the development of further downstream and upstream activities in the oil and gas sector and beyond, and to encourage the economic diversification of Dubai and the rest of the UAE.
