Ergil wins oil terminal project in Iraq
Istanbul, Turkey , December 23, 2007
Ergil, one of the leading providers of oil, gas, water, chemical, and petrochemical storage tank facility EPC services, has been awarded the Suleymania Fuel Storage Tank Project in northern Iraq.
Engineering and design studies began last week, and the project is scheduled to finish in eight months. The 60,000 cu m capacity terminal will consist of 12 tanks. The project also includes administrative buildings, warehouses, social buildings, five loading platforms, and landscaping.
The terminal will be operated by North Iraqi Regional Government, which will distribute oil to local market, and support local operations in Iraq, and minimize Iraq’s dependence on foreign sources, the company said in a statement. It is one of the first oil storage terminal investments after the war.
Erol Dag, project group manager at Ergil explains: “The ability to mobilise, centralise, and manage a project in Iraq is not an easy task. However, Ergil has vast experience in working in risky countries, such as Iraq. Past years have taught us how to set up the most secure working environment for our crew and minimise the risk.” -- TradeArabia News Service
