Bad weather halts tanker traffic at UAE’s Jebel Ali port

Bad weather halts tanker traffic at UAE’s Jebel Ali port

Tanker movements in and out of the United Arab Emirates' Jebel Ali port were stopped early Sunday as strong winds caused a thick sandstorm, an official at the port said on Sunday.

The United Arab Emirates port of Jebel Ali reopened for oil tanker use on Sunday afternoon after bad weather halted traffic in the early hours of the morning, an official at the port said.

“As of 1330 hours traffic has resumed,” the official said on Sunday afternoon. A sandstorm reduced visibility and stopped tanker movements in and out of the port at around 0200 local time on Sunday.

The Jebel Ali port in the emirate of Dubai is a major oil blending center for clean petroleum products such as jet fuel and diesel.

Oil tanker traffic at Ruwais Petroleum Port, about 220 kilometers west of Abu Dhabi and home to a major refinery, was running normally Sunday morning, a shipping agency official said.

Tanker traffic at the crude oil terminal at Jebel Dhanna was also running normally early Sunday, he said. (Reporting by Humeyra Pamuk, editing by Daniel Fineren)
