Steadily expanded over the years since its commission in 1988, the petroleum storage terminal at Jebel Ali in Dubai now has a present total capacity in excess of 920,000 m3, which comprises 33 tanks ranging in size from 3,000 to 80,000 m3, together with 2 dedicated berths with the capability to handle ships up to 125,000 DWT, plus pipeline access to other terminals and berths in the Jebel Ali port complex.
Originally owned 100% by Star Energy Group Ltd., and successfully operated from its commissioning in 1988 through to 2004, the terminal built a reputation as a leader in the region for quality service. In 2004 the Hamburg based company Oiltanking GmbH (the second largest independent petroleum storage company in the world) joined hands with Star Energy Group Ltd., and the terminal is now operating under the commercial brand of Star Energy Oiltanking. This partnership has shown steady growth and is reaping the rewards of Star Energy's experience and knowledge within the Middle East, together with Oiltanking's leverage in the terminalling business.
