Al-Hamra Petroleum port is cited as a big opportunity for the petroleum industry with a strategic geographic advantage and a competent workforce that will help generate returns.
In order to meet the fuel needs of the expanding urban population and industrial districts, the minister officially opened projects like a storage and shipment facility for petroleum products with a capacity of about 400,000 tons. By streamlining traffic, the initiative hopes to ease strain on the transit of petroleum products along coastal roads.
