PCS opens US$80m naphtha import facilities on Jurong Island

PETROCHEMICAL Corporation of Singapore (PCS) on Wednesday marked the official opening of its US$80 million naphtha import facilities on Jurong Island, a project first announced two years ago in 2016.

PCS’s newest installation includes eight storage tanks totalling some 240,000 cubic metres of capacity, a 120,000 deadweight tonnage (DWT) liquid berth capable of handling large vessels transporting naphtha, and associated facilities.

In previous reporting by the Nikkei Asian Review, the berth will be able to dock tankers with a capacity of 50,000 to 70,000 tonnes, doubling the size that can be accommodated.

This will cut drop-offs by naphtha tankers to once every eight to 10 days, from once every four to five days.
