Construction of ENOC Group’s16.2km jet fuel pipeline linking its storage terminals in Jebel Ali to Al Maktoum International Airport in Dubai South has now exceeded 20 percent. 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.
Set to meet the demand for jet fuel at Dubai Airports up until 2050, the pipeline will be equipped with state-of-the-art safety features including a leak detection system, complete automation control and quality control, among others.
ENOC currently supplies jet fuel to Dubai International Airport through two jet fuel pipelines.
Al Maktoum International is expected to become the world’s largest airport with an annual capacity exceeding 220 million passengers and 16 million tonnes of cargo, and the jet fuel pipeline extension will serve as a significant part of the supporting infrastructure, assuring seamless jet fuel supply to the airlines.
