Key Competitive Advantages
WITHIN MALAYSIA’S PENGERANG INTEGRATED PETROLEUM COMPLEX (PIPC) MASTERPLAN
Approximately 1,673 acres of land will be reclaimed from the coast of Teluk Ramunia and will extend out off the south-eastern coast of Johor, Malaysia. Benalec’s Pengerang Maritime Industrial Park is situated within the masterplan of PIPC which will house oil refineries, naphtha crackers, storage facilities, petrochemical plants and liquefied natural gas import terminals and regasification facility.
This is an excellent location for downstream support activities complementary to the Refinery and Petrochemicals Integrated Development (RAPID) project currently being developed by the Malaysian National Oil Company, Petroliam Nasional Berhad (Petronas) within the PIPC.
EXTREME PROXIMIY TO RAPID
Pengerang Maritime Industrial Park is situated only 5km away from Petronas RAPID. Scheduled to be commissioned by 2019, Petronas RAPID will comprise a crude oil refinery with capacity of 300,000 barrels per day, a naphtha cracker with annual production capacity of 3 million tonnes and a petrochemical and polymer complex.
NATURAL DEEP WATER AND VAST SEA FRONTING LAND
Besides its geographical strengths, Pengerang Maritime Industrial Park boasts natural deep water between 20-24 meters which borders the site, enabling it to handle Very Large Crude Carriers (VLCC), Ultra Large Crude Carriers (ULCC) and even ValeMax Bulk Carriers with minimal capital and maintenance dredging. Direct access to the natural deep water can be achieved with the construction of a short jetty trestle.
Upon completion of reclamation, Pengerang Maritime Industrial Park will create vast land for future expansion and a total of 3.7-kilometer stretch of valuable seafront land which is able to accommodate up to 20 berths from the range of 2,000 DWT to 350,000 DWT. Pengerang Maritime Industrial Park is also a naturally sheltered harbor free from adverse weather conditions.
