Talks are ongoing between three big oil companies and Harbour Centre Port Terminal Inc. for the transfer of their oil depot in Pandacan to the Harbour Centre, a 79-hectare reclaimed land in Tondo, Manila.
"What Harbour Centre envisions for the oil companies is an oil island," says Romero. "It would be ideal to have an oil island at the Harbour Centre, which will be connected by a 500-meter bridgeway from the main Manila Harbour Centre."
He says that what is envisioned would provide maximum security to the depot, efficient environment protection facilities, and safety to the nearest communities. He states Harbour Centre will present this proposal for an oil island in succeeding meetings with the oil companies.
Manila Mayor Lito Atienza has reportedly given a thumbs-up to the plan for the depot transfer to the Harbour Centre, noting the place to be the most practical site for the purpose. Atienza has cited that the Harbour Centre, which is classified as an industrial zone, can readily accommodate the depot at a cost much lower than for the oil companies to separately reclaim land for this purpose.
Romero says the Harbour Centre can provide world-class security for the depot of the three companies. International security standards are already in place at the reclaimed site which hosts the 15-hectare Harbour Centre Port Terminal. Security at the first-class business port is International Shipping and Port Facility Security- certified, Romero states.
The Harbour Centre Port Terminal accounts for over 90 percent of the country's noncontainerized cargo shipments. With modern equipment and amenities as well as the port's deep berths and long working apron, Harbour Centre has since offered clients efficient service and bigger savings with their fast turn-around time for vessels.
