NEWS Trafigura wins Ethiopia's contract for Fuel imports selects Berbera Port

@Passenger was correct about Trafigura and SL working together, Trafigura has released a statement regarding the oil terminals
They plan to expand significantly the oil storage facility in Berbera. Also they are going to dig the sea deeper so it can manage to accommodate their supertankers. We are talking about supertankers that carry 1 million cubic tone of oil products.

The plan is to make Berbera Oil Terminal a regional re-export hub. Which means, both Ethiopia, Kenya, Somalia will be potential customers.

This is a huge win for Berbera.

I doubt normal citizens will benefit though so in my opinion this is nothing to be excited about.

I also doubt somalis will be like the Qatari and spread the wealth between each Qatari citizen.

Poverty is still going to be rife, corruption is too much somalis are the biggest xasidiin to each other.

There are no terrorists in Somaliland. However if puntland wins the fight against terrorists maybe they can sell some raw materials from Bari to the processing plants in berbera.

1. We're fighting al hayadeen dont worry

2. Entirety of eastern Sanaag and its natural beauty, its fruits and materials falls under Puntland

3. The people of eastern sanaag are already culturally and economically linked to Bosaso, its where they sell their produce, we'll also build roads that taps into this market.

4. Sorry Sanaag is heaven on earth, we are not letting go of it, you can have the habar yonis side if you want

There is no such thing as eastern sanaag there is just the province of sanaag in Somaliland. Warsangeli are an ethnic minority in Somaliland and inhabit 10% of sanaag. They are somalilanders kkkk

No such thing broski - Puntland has that area on lock this is not Sool. The locals are proud puntlanders and are culturally reer Bari.

Warsangeli have chosen Puntland, and their towns like Badhan and Dhahar pay taxes to the Puntland government already.


This whole area of the Cal Madow belongs to us

Trafigura to invest in improving Berbera Oil Terminal to become a regional supply hub

Trafigura Group Pte Ltd. (“Trafigura”), a market leader in the global commodities industry, has this week delivered a first shipment of low sulphur gasoil to the Port of Berbera, following the signing of a milestone storage agreement earlier this year with the Government of Somaliland’s Ministry of Trade,

Industry and Tourism. This is the first step in a commitment by Trafigura to invest in Berbera Oil Terminal (“BOT”) facilities to position it as a gateway to serve customers within the country, and integrate oil logistics across the Horn of Africa.

Trafigura, with the full support of the Government, intends to upgrade BOT in a phased approach to improve and expand the storage capacity, and eventually facilitate the import of jet fuel and LPG to meet local and regional demand whilst ensuring international health and safety standards. Plans also include increasing the draft to enable larger vessels to be received and allow local traders more economical import of refined products and access to re-export markets. This will help support the Somaliland Government’s ambition to transform Berbera port as a strategic hub in a region where demand is growing year on year.

Mr. Mohamoud Hassan Saad, Minister of Trade Industry and Tourism, said:
“We’re delighted to be working with a leading independent, international company like Trafigura to improve the quality and reliability of refined petroleum product supply into the country. By working with Trafigura there will be increased transparency, high standards, and increased competitiveness across the supply chain.”

James Josling, Head of Africa Energy Trading for Trafigura, said:
“The agreement gives Trafigura access to the existing terminal for storage of refined petroleum products in order to supply the local market in a strategically important regionю We are working alongside the Government to reduce sulphur limits in the local fuel specifications, to give the opportunity for Somaliland to align product specifications with regional market standards such as Ethiopia and Djibouti, which will promote cross-border trade while improving air quality in line with Trafigura’s wider ESG agenda and commitment to Africa.”
From the horse's mouth.

Congratulations.

Next time open the thread with a news article that matches the title.
 
MashaAllah what a dub for Somaliland :win:

This how SL should attracted international investors. Meanwhile, Somalia will write a letter to the international community and ask them to "kick" the company out because it violates its "Sovereignty". Then the Somalia FM Ahmed Isse Awad we’ll speak to BBC Somali or some other news network and explain their illegitimate claim to Somaliland :ftw9nwa:

Why would they need to come to Sanaag if they operate in Berbera or will operate in Berbera?
