Oiltanking to Aquire 20 Percent of Açu Port’s Oil Terminal
Oiltanking GmbH is pleased to announce the conclusion of an agreement with Prumo Logistica SA, which owns and operates the Industrial Complex Açu Port in Brazil, to acquire 20 percent of Açu Port’s crude oil transshipment facility. This transaction will further strengthen Oiltanking’s position in Brazil and in Latin America as a whole.

As part of the agreement, Oiltanking will operate and manage the terminal’s crude-handling operations. The transshipment terminal has a licensed capacity to handle up to 1.2 million barrels per day (bpd) of crude oil and is designed to accommodate very large crude carriers (VLCCs). It shares existing infrastructure with Açu Port’s operational iron ore terminal and is scheduled to begin operations in August 2016.

Oiltanking believes that the large-scale crude oil transshipment terminal at Açu Port offers its customers state-of-the-art transshipment facilities, with mineral oil storage, blending and treatment facilities to be added in the future at world class HSSE standards.

The transshipment terminal will have a great positive impact on the logistics and economics of the petroleum sector in Brazil and will provide an opportunity for increasing efficiency and reducing costs for clients’ oil and gas operations due to its proximity to Brazil’s largest oil fields. The ship-to-ship operation at Açu Port will transfer oil from specialized dynamically positioned shuttle tankers (DPST’s) to conventional vessels, thereby substantially reducing the export freight charge on Brazil's crude oil.

About Açu Port

Açu Port is the largest port in the Americas with 17 kilometers of quay, over 90 square kilometers of land, and a channel depth of 24 meters, making it capable of receiving the largest class of oceangoing vessels. Its strategic location near the Campos Basin and Santos Basins, which together account for over 80 percent of Brazilian crude oil production, makes the port very suitable for servicing the oil and gas industry.
