Providing Energy Security In Jordan

Aqaba Heavy Fuel Oil (HFO)

Built in 1978 as Jordan’s biggest heavy oil storage terminal, the Aqaba Heavy Oil Terminal’s products are called upon on a need-to-use basis to maintain energy security, and to serve heavy fuel export markets. The Government of Jordan transferred the ownership of this terminal to JOTC in 2017, as part of its restructuring plan of the petroleum sector.
