Saudi Arabia's Jubail port to handle petrochemical exports

Apr '13
Jubail Commercial Port (JCP), located on the eastern central coast of Saudi Arabia on the Arabian Gulf about 14 km southeast of the King Fahd Industrial Port in Jubail, will become a key exporting gateway for petrochemical products.
 
The Jubail port covering about 44 sq km is one of the biggest man-made ports in the world on reclaimed land. It will become a major petrochemical exporting gateway due to a mega logistics project being launched by the Saudi Basic Industries Corporation (SABIC), JCP general manager Capt. Fahed Ahmed Amer said.
 
Addressing a business meeting at Asharqia chamber, Capt. Amer said leading companies including SABIC, Sipchem and Chevron have obtained land slots on lease at JCP.
 
Besides, the Royal Commission is also implementing projects to set up separate way for trucks, linking the port to the industrial zone, Capt. Amer said.
 
Also, the railway project, which is close to completion, would link the port to the industrial zone.
 
Noting that JCP is enduring a phase of continuous growth, Capt. Amer said the port authorities would make all efforts to develop the port into the main point for Saudi exports to world markets. This would also perk up the competition between other ports in the world, particularly in Asia, he added.
 
Presently the port has a handling capacity of about nine million tons and 300,000 containers. 
 
The port having 16 operating docks recently registered a 47 percent rise in containers and with addition of new stations and specialized equipment enabled to boost its operating capacity, the port is expected to achieve better growth in years to come, JCP general manager said.
