The Bitmen Plant
A land space provision adjacent the shoreline of about 15,210sqm has been allocated for the construction and setting up of the Bitumen Plant. This space would greatly enhance loading and offloading of bitumen Tanker Vessel.
Masters Energy Oil and Gas Limited intends to set-up a fully integrated Bitumen Plant in its Energy City logistic centre at Rumuolumeni, Port Harcourt, River State. The decision to build a bitumen plant is premised on the dearth supply of the product to the Nigerian market and the need to reduce construction and production costs in the Nigeria economy. The plant will be designed to accommodate 10,000mt of bitumen. Bitumen is used for road construction, the production of fuel oil and petrochemicals.
The company has concluded bitumen market research and survey as well as prepared to take the market by storm. Masters Energy City with the addition of its bitumen tank will offer a one-stop energy solution to the nation and its neighbouring West African countries by providing all their energy needs. This plant will support the manufacture of value added polymer modified bitumen products that will improve safety on the roads and reduce the risk of skidding, rutting, road cracking and ageing. Strategically, we shall aggressively develop the local market and explore the possibilities of West African partnerships. The bitumen plant would offer advantages which includes fast loading rate with good accessible road to the plant.
The plant will store cold bitumen and is connected to a hot oil unit that heats the bitumen before it is loaded onto trucks for transportation.The Plant will handle and receive bitumen at its own Jetty facility. The facility shall be available for through put and lease to third party. Modern technology would be deployed in the construction and engineering design of the plant while conforming to the highest API and HSE standards. The Company hopes to make a significant contribution to the social development of its customers and communities.
