Mott MacDonald appointed on major petroleum hub project in Malaysia

Mott MacDonald has been appointed by Asia Petroleum Hub Sdn. Bhd. (APH), to provide engineering designs and procurement and construction management (EPCM) services for a £220 million petroleum terminal to be built on a man-made island in Mukim Serkat Daerah Pontian, near the port of Tanjung Pelepas, Johor, Malaysia.

The petroleum hub will be owned and operated by APH, a subsidiary of KIC Oil & Gas, a leading private oil company in Malaysia. Mott MacDonald’s project team has been briefed to design the hub with facilities to receive, store, blend and distribute petroleum products including break-bulk facilities for fully laden vessels up to 350,000dwt. It is envisaged that the island will be connected to the mainland by a bridge and will have around 950,000m3 product storage capacity with seven fixed berths for vessels up to 150,000dwt and a single point mooring system for ULCC’s (Ultra Large Crude Carrier).

The designs will also include tanker truck loading facilities for inland distribution, loading bunker barges as well as coasters for offshore bunkering and loading product carriers for trading and third party storage. In addition, services for the blending of fuel oil and gasoline are to be incorporated in the plan for the terminal to enable production of different grades of fuel oil and unleaded gasoline.

On 27 March 2007, APH announced that the Malaysian Government has given the consent to proceed with the project. The terminal is expected to be one of the largest, privately owned fully integrated petroleum terminals when fully operational in 2009.

Sam Mathew, Mott MacDonald’s project director said, “We are delighted to be appointed for this prestigious project by APH. Mott MacDonald has a wealth of expertise in oil and gas consultancy on similar projects around the world and we look forward to demonstrating our skills by helping APH deliver a modern terminal that will place Malaysia at the heart of the World Petroleum Market."
