ATB in Johor, Malaysia, offers storage of well over one million m3. It is perfectly located, lying at the heart of the vibrant energy trading hub for Asia, in the so-called FOB Straits.
The deep water ATB terminal caters for regional distribution, and with shorter turnaround times. It also offers product blending at lower operating costs compared with equivalent terminals in neighbouring Singapore. The terminal handles (among other products) gasoline, jet fuel, gasoil, fuel oil and biofuels, and is easily accessible by ship, barge and road.

Phase 2, which opened in August 2015, adds a further 267,000 m3 of fuel oil tankage and takes ATB’s total capacity to 7.3 million barrels /1,160,000 m3. The expansion includes a sixth berth which caters for ships up to Aframax size (120,000 DWT) with a maximum draft of 17.5 metres.
