The Omišalj Terminal is located on the northern side of the island of Krk, near the town of Omišalj, and serves for receipt, storage and delivery of crude oil and petroleum products to the users of our transportation system.
The area of the Omišalj Terminal comprises two berths intended for receiving and discharging the tankers carrying crude oil or petroleum products, with related equipment. Each berth is equipped with 4x16” unloading arms for crude oil and 2x12” unloading arms for petroleum products.
Terminal’s major advantage lies in its being naturally sheltered from the outbursts of strong winds and having the sea depth of approx. 30 m by the berths in the Omišalj Bay. For this reason, the tanker port is safe for accommodating the vessels 24 hours a day all year round. The port has a necessary area in order for even today’s largest tankers (VLCCs/ULCCs) with up to 500 000 deadweight tonnage to be accommodated, able to conduct the manoeuvring and berthing operations and leave the port.
Storage tank farm for crude oil at the Omišalj Terminal consists of the following:
- eleven storage tanks with capacity of 80 000 m3each
- five storage tanks with capacity of 72 000 m3each
- four storage tanks with capacity of 40 000 m3each
Total: seventeen storage tanks with total capacity of 1 400 000 m3
Storage tank farm for petroleum products consists of the following:
- one storage tank with capacity of 20 000 m3
- one storage tank with capacity of 15 000 m3
- four storage tanks with capacity of 10 000 m3
- one storage tank with capacity 5 000 m3
Total: six storage tanks with total capacity of 80 000 m3
Right next to the storage tanks, there is a road loading facility for petroleum products, with the possibility of simultaneously loading four road tanks, equipped with vapour recovery unit and a possibility of adding additives and biofuels.
In the Terminal main building, there is the Control Centre whose task is to control the oil pipeline and storage system.
