ATB Terminal, Tanjung Bin, Malaysia, receives 100,000 dwt tanker as its first customer

The ATB oil terminal in the Port of Pelepas, Tanjung Bin, owned and operated by VTTI, the 50/50 joint venture between Vitol and the Malaysian maritime conglomerate MISC received its first oil tanker alongside their deep draft jetty facilities. The MT “Kition”, a 100,000 DWT tanker safely and successfully discharged at ATB's VLCC berth.

The receipt of the first fuel oil cargo from the MT Kition represents a significant milestone for the ATB oil terminal, offering new storage and logistics opportunities for petroleum products in the Singapore region at competitive rates.

The terminal is a grass-root project which began construction in September of 2009. The first phase consists of 41 oil storage tanks, totaling 841,000 cubic meters of storage for Fuel oil, Gasoline, and Middle Distillates. Phase 1 of the ATB oil terminal is designed to handle 20 million metric tons of oil products per annum, accommodating 5 seagoing tankers at once.

According to VTTI’s spokesman, fuel oil can be loaded at a rate of 7,500 cbm/hour, middle distillates at 7,000 cbm/hour and light ends at 5,500 cbm/hour. Up to 15 simultaneous operations can be performed, all controlled by a highly automated system and managed by the VTTI proprietary Terminal Management System.
