Project Name Installation of Single Point Mooring (SPM) with Double Pipe Line
Sponsoring Ministry/Division Ministry of Power, Energy and Mineral Resources/ Energy and Mineral Resources Division
Executing Agency Eastern Refinery Limited (ERL) (On behalf of Bangladesh Petroleum Corporation (BPC))
Objectives of the Project 1. Simplify and accelerate imported crude oil and finished products unolading process
2. Shortening crude oil and HSD unolading time
3. Lowering the unloading cost of imported crude oil and finished products by eliminating lightering process
4. Increasing Crude Oil processing capacity to meet increased demand of the country
5. Construction of a tank farm at Maheshkhali as an emergency oil storage backup
6. Increasing finished product stroage gacilites to ensure energy security of the country
Project in Brief The single point mooring will be located at the West side of Maheshkhali Island where 27 M depth is available, which is sufficient for docking a large tanker of 120,000 DWT. Unloading of crude oil and HSD from single point mooring will be done through two separate Ø36” pipelines (Offshore and Onshore) and will be stored into the storage tanks at Maheshkahli. Crude oil and HSD from there will be pumped to ERL through two separate Ø18” pipelines (Offshore and Onshore). Two separate lines for crude oil and HSD will eliminate significant product loss due to contamination if transported through single pipeline and ensure efficient and continuous transport of designed quantity of each product along the entire transport chain. This is a backward linkage project to the project "Installation of ERL Unit-2". Implementation of this project is pre-requisite for “Installation of ERL Unit-2” project.
Total Estimated Project Cost 493597.35 (Approx.) Lakh Taka
Importance of this Project This project will provide huge savings of foreign currency. Upon commissioning & operation net savings of foreign currency will be more than 100 Million USD (Tk 78000.00 Lakh) per year.
Project Implementation Period 01 November 2015 to 31 December 2018
Project Management Consultant ILF Consulting Engineers, Germany
EPC Contractor China Petroleum Pipeline Bureau (CPP)
