29 Jul 2022

Floods have shut operations in the port of Fujairah, UAE, the world’s third largest bunkering centre.

The National Centre of Meteorology has issued a red weather alert for Fujairah, and the military has stepped in to participate in rescue operations. Port authorities have imposed restrictions on movement in the port area and all offices will remain shut until further advice.

Terminal operator and bunker supplier GPS Chemoil has announced a force majeure, saying flooding of its terminal has resulted “in the pumphouse being completely submerged.”

“The port is closed, there are no operations taking place,” a Fujairah-based bunker trader said. “There will be delays and a backlog in delivery operations.”
