Oil terminal opens in Beira
Oct 20, 2003
Mozambique president Joachim Chissano today (Monday, 20 October 2002) opened a USD 8.2million oil terminal in the port of Beira.
The terminal, owned and developed by oil major BP, has taken 18 months to complete and replaces Beira’s original oil terminal was left in ruins following the long Mozambique civil war.
The new terminal will handle refined petroleum imports destined for Central Mozambique and other neighbouring Central African countries. From the Mozambique port these products will be delivered by road, rail and pipeline and will include a link to the Beira – Malawi railway once that line has been refurbished and reopened.
Most of the oil product received by the Beira terminal will be delivered by ship from the BP/Shell refinery in Durban.
