ENOC Group broadens jet fuel network with debut in China
In a strategic move to meet rising global energy demands, ENOC Group, a prominent integrated global energy entity, has unveiled its jet fuel network’s expansion into China. This marks the group’s inaugural entry into the Chinese market, encompassing 14 airports in key cities such as Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou, Shenzhen, and Chengdu.
His Excellency Saif Humaid Al Falasi, group CEO of ENOC, commented, “Our commitment to providing top-tier, sustainable energy solutions is evident in our expansion into some of China’s busiest airports. ENOC’s robust presence spans over 300 airports in 25 countries, underscoring our growth trajectory and achievements. Our dedication remains firm in addressing the escalating global energy demands.”
ENOC Aviation, ENOC’s specialised aviation fuel division, established its international footprint in 2002. It boasts a significant presence in over 300 airports across 25 countries, spanning regions from the Middle East and Africa to South East Asia and Europe.
Originating from the United Arab Emirates, ENOC Aviation supplies over 40% of the jet fuel needs for Dubai International Airport. This is facilitated through two dedicated pipelines connecting its storage facilities in Jebel Ali to the airport. In a recent development, the group celebrated the completion of a 16.2 kilometre (km) jet fuel pipeline. This pipeline, connecting the Horizon Emirates Jebel Ali Petroleum (HEJP) storage terminal in Jebel Ali to Al Maktoum International Airport, is designed to transport 2,000 cubic meters of jet fuel per hour. It is projected to cater to Dubai Airports’ jet fuel demands until 2050.
