Dhi Qar Oil Company announced, on Monday, the launch of work on the Nasiriyah oil depot construction project, which will be implemented by the Chinese company CPP, with a storage capacity of more than 3 million barrels, stressing that it will be the largest of its kind in Iraq and enhance export capabilities.
This came during a ceremony organized by the executing company, in the presence of the Director General of the Oil Projects Company in the Ministry, the representative of the Director General of Dhi Qar Oil Company, and the company's media director. The company's branch in Iraq is Go.
"The project will be implemented by the Chinese company CBB, which specializes in the construction of oil depots, and it will be the largest of its kind in Iraq, as it will be implemented on an area of approximately 1,000 acres," Ali Ibrahim, the official of the Nasiriyah Depot Operation Division, said in a statement.
Ibrahim added, "The warehouse consists of 7 tanks, 4 of which will be allocated for storing heavy oil, while the rest will be allocated for storing light oil, with the establishment of two relief tanks," pointing out that "the capacity of each tank is 66 thousand cubic meters, equivalent to 415 thousand barrels, while the relief tanks will have a capacity of 23,000 cubic meters of oil.
He explained that "the total storage capacity in the warehouse, after its completion, will reach 3,200,000 barrels, and it is intended for export." It pumps crude oil through the strategic line with a capacity of 42 knots to the central and northern regions of Iraq, and it covers the electric power generation stations, the central and the middle Euphrates refineries, including the Karbala and Dora refineries, and the rest of the other refineries located on the strategic line.
