Reconstruction is to be complete in early 2011 on the oil and petrochemicals terminal in Malaysia's Tanjung Langsat Port, as per Platts. The port was shut following a fire in August 2008. Reconstruction on tanks 1 and 2, with a combined capacity of 20,000m3 are still under way and are targeted for completion end January 2011. 6 of the eight tanks, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 and 8, received approval from DOSH earlier this year, to restart operations. Full operation at the 100,000m3 oil and petrochemicals terminal is expected at the end March or early April next year.
This will be followed by the inspections and the approval process by the federal authority's Department of Occupational Safety and Health, or DOSH, all of which will take an estimated two months, following which the terminal will be able to restart at full capacity.
