Leading player in Kerosene
Direct kerosene transport
Amsterdam is a leading player in the oil energy market. Amsterdam specializes in blending gasoline, as well as providing substantial storage for diesel and aviation fuel kerosene. All facilities are available for the storage and transport of kerosene. Amsterdam Airport Schiphol receives about half the kerosene it needs via a 16 kilometer underground pipeline connecting the airport to Oiltanking Amsterdam.
The Amsterdam port region and its refineries are uniquely located within the ARA (Amsterdam, Rotterdam, Antwerp) oil products hub. Positioned in Europe’s largest delta, with a well-equipped sea-entrance, excellent hinterland connections by water, rail, road, air and underground pipeline and close to Amsterdam Airport Schiphol, the port of Amsterdam offers an excellent location for kerosene.
‘Schiphol Airport receives half of its kerosene via our pipeline’
Peter van Wessel, General Manager Oiltanking Amsterdam.
‘Oiltanking is one of the largest oil storing enterprises worldwide. Partly thanks to our company Amsterdam is the world's largest petrol port. More than half of our tanks are filled with petrol; the others contain (bio)diesel and kerosene. I’m proud that half of all kerosene Amsterdam Airport Schiphol needs is transported via a 15 kilometer underground pipeline from our storage tanks.’
