ENOC’S jet fuel pipeline to Al Maktoum airport on track for completion in time for Dubai Expo 2020
ENOC Group announced that construction of its 16.2km jet fuel pipeline linking its storage terminals in Jebel Ali to Al Maktoum International Airport in Dubai South has now exceeded 20% of the work involved.
The announcement was made during the 20th Water, Energy, Technology & Environment Exhibition (WETEX 2018). The pipeline is scheduled to be operational in the first quarter of 2020, in time for Dubai Expo 2020. Upon completion, the pipeline will carry 2,000 cubic metres of jet fuel per hour to Al Maktoum International Airport, which is billed to be the world’s largest, and will help meet the demand for aviation services from a significant proportion of the international visitors to the Expo.
Saif Humaid Al Falasi, group chief executive officer of ENOC, said: “We are committed to contribute to the long-term socio-economic growth of Dubai and the UAE. The jet fuel pipeline connecting to Al Maktoum International Airport is one project that reiterates our commitment to elevate our country’s key infrastructure.”
Progress in the construction of the 16.2km pipeline linking ENOC’S storage terminals in Jebel Ali to Al Maktoum International Airport underlines its commitment as the Dubai Expo 2020’s Integrated Energy Partner.
