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.
