Oil Harbour

Aden Refinery Company and the oil harbour were constructed in the mid-1950’s to receive and refine oil from other countries and provide the various grades of fuel needed by ships bunkering at the port, underpinning Aden’s growing success as a ‘middle distance’ bunkering point between Europe and the sub-Continent and Far East.

Aden Refinery Company (ARC) handled around 12 million MT of crude and refined products up to 2014, with oil products used in Yemen and exported by tankers to other ports in the country.  Imports in 2014 were 7.5 million MT and exports 4.5 million MT.  From 2015 onwards, ARC has been handling imports and exports of refined products only, using the following berths:


Berth No. Depth (m) Notes
1 13.5 ‘T’ jetty. For tankers up to 85000 DWT, LOA 260 m - for loading refined products. Dredged in 1993.
2 11.5 ‘T’ jetty. For tankers up to 65000 DWT, LOA 180 m - for loading refined products. Dredged in 1987.
