Calor Gas Terminal

The Calor Gas Terminal on Canvey Island handles a throughput of circa 150,000 tonnes of liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) a year and plays a major role in the success of Calor as the leading distributor of LPG. It has a dedicated jetty, which allows for refrigerated LPG imports from VLGCs of up to 250 metres loa, with the product being stored in eight separate insulated tanks at -42 degrees centigrade.

LPG imports are distributed inland by road tanker and via a recently modified 8 km underground LPG pipeline that connects the Canvey Terminal to Calor’s Coryton Filling Plant – giving an important environmental advantage by reducing the number of road tanker movements in and out of the terminal.

The new access road to the terminal, opened in October 2014 at a cost of £1 million following agreement between Calor, Oikos and the PLA, has significantly improved the amenity for the local residents as all LPG road tankers are now being routed away from the built-up areas on Canvey and use the Roscommon Way extension for access to the terminal.

An additional road tanker loading facility has been constructed to further enhance the capacity available for tanker loading to meet peak winter demand and ensure supply security to customers.

Some LPG is re-exported by ship via pressurised LPG carriers to many European countries, ranging from the France to Poland. The Canvey Terminal helps to ensure the continuity of supply to Calor’s UK customers and its strategic location provides Calor with access to a network of worldwide LPG suppliers.

The terminal also plays a key role in the international storage and supply strategies of Calor’s parent company, SHV, which operates LPG business throughout Europe, Asia and South America.

Oikos Storage Ltd

Oikos Storage Ltd is a bulk liquid storage terminal strategically sited on Canvey Island at the mouth of the Thames estuary. At this prime location, the Oikos Storage Terminal is unique in the UK in having access to both the CLH Pipeline System (CLH-PS), formerly the Government Pipeline and Storage System (GPSS), and the UK Oil Pipeline System (UKOP), allowing aviation fuel and road fuels to be pumped directly into both systems.

A top tier COMAH site, the Oikos terminal handles the full range of liquid bulks, including aviation fuel, gasoline, diesel, marine bunker fuels and other petroleum products and chemicals. The first phase of a £65 million investment programme at the site was completed mid-2012, including the rebuilding of Jetty 1 at a cost of £8 million to handle ships up to 50,000 dwt (now up-rated to 55,000 dwt) and 12.5 metres draft.

Other work included replacing the entire onsite pipeline network, refurbishing or demolishing/ rebuilding dozens of tanks, building a high-tech control room and refurbishing road-loading racks.

A second phase of investment was completed and commenced operation in 2013.

Owned by the Australian financial services company Challenger, Oikos has signed up a number of major customers in the past few years and has now received planning permission for the next phase of development. Planning permission was received from Castle Point Borough Council and the MMO in August 2016 for a new jetty capable of receiving LR2 vessels up to 120,000 dwt and 14.5 metres draft; preliminary exploratory works have been completed and detailed design is under way with construction due to start in the summer of 2017.

The development also includes rebuilding of a further tank bund consisting of 12 tanks with a total capacity of 80,000 cu m and licensed for gasoline storage, and dedicated road loading bays for Jet A1.

The terminal is within easy reach of the M25 via the A13 and A127, and has recently benefited from a new road built as part of the Canvey Island regeneration. The opening of Roscommon Way enabled road tankers heading to and from the Oikos facility to bypass local homes, thus minimising disruption to residents.

Thames Oilport

Thames Oilport is a new deepwater import terminal on the site of the former Coryton refinery.

Owned by Greenergy (two thirds) and Shell (one third), Thames Oilport is being developed in phases. Following refurbishment and renovation of tankage for diesel storage in 2016, the site has been prepared for import and road distribution of diesel and heating oil commencing Q2 2017. Future phases of the terminal’s development will see the addition of petrol blending and supply.

Thames Oilport benefits from the following:
• A deep-water jetty able to receive long-haul diesel ships and connec twith the Middle Eastern, Asian and US markets
• Strategically important location with a rapidly growing population and rising fuel demand.
• Connection to the UKOP pipeline, giving the potential to move fuel inland to other areas of significant demand.

The remainder of the Coryton refinery site is being used for Thames Enterprise Park. As one of the largest industrial sites in the northern Thames Gateway, Thames Enterprise Park is a key regeneration site, offering a multimodal employment park, providing transport and freight connectivity from road, rail and river.
