The breadth of Handling, Depth of Capacity:
The Port of Salalah’s liquid bulk terminal has two dedicated berths of 18m draft spanning 666 meters with an annual handling capacity of 6 million Tones. Port of Salalah’s liquid terminal currently handles a diverse portfolio of cargo ranging from Fuel, Methanol, LPG, MEG, and vegetable oil, amongst others and has been growing steadily year on year. As part of the growing importance of sustainability, renewable energy initiatives are gathering momentum, supported by the Government of Oman; our future vision is for Salalah to become a green energy hub.
Dedicated Pipe Corridor:
A dedicated 4.5kms pipe corridor directly links the liquid bulk terminal with customers in Salalah Freezone. The pipe rack has a total capacity of 4.5 million Tonnes of liquid cargo, and current utilisation is 50% leaving room for future growth and expansions.
The latest infrastructure enhancement at the Port of Salalah is a new dedicated jetty for LPG exports. This, along with adjoining processing facilities, has the potential to make it into a new energy hub to meet the growing demand in both domestic and international markets.
Many shippers have found the Liquid Bulk Terminal perfect for their petroleum cargo needs. This is because it has a state-of-the-art Tank farm infrastructure with a capacity of 1,20,000 tonnes.
Methanol and Ammonia:
Methanol is one of the primary liquid bulk commodities handled at the liquid terminal, with volume growing steadily as new products and exports commence.
A Proud Contributor to Progress:
The Liquid Bulk Terminal is an integral part of the Port of Salalah, which is evolving into a critical centre of trade and logistics for liquid cargo in the region. We’re ready to cater to new markets and meet the needs of a broader cross-section of customers.
