Terminals and Storage


Local Oil Terminal

  • In 2000, Galana acquired the main oil import terminal with 45 hectares of land and storage capacity of 250,000m3.
  • From 2000 to date, Galana Raffinerie et Terminal (GRT) has expanded and modernised the local import Terminal facilities, with 22 storage tanks of 110,000m3 capacity, a sludge treatment plant, as well as trucks and rail wagons loading bays.
  • GRT receives, stores, maintains, and delivers imported petroleum products for the 4 local petroleum distributors. The Terminal receives tankers at the Jetty and transports products via pipelines to the storage tanks. Product is then delivered through trucks, rail wagons and coastal tankers.
  • GRT owns and operates a state-of-the-art Laboratory that provides product quality assurance for the local distributors.
  • GRT is proud to have been recommended by SGS for the following triple-certification: ISO 9001, ISO 14001, and OHSAS 18001.

Regional Free-Zone Storage Hub

As of 2000, GRT developed a Free-Zone Hub consisting of 100,000m3 storage tanks, which is distinct and separate from the Import Terminal. Galana has enough land to construct more storage tanks to reach a total capacity of 500,000m3 with minimum construction costs.

Opportunities to leverage the Hub’s capabilities and unique geographic position include:

  • Breaking of bulk and re-supply of the various regional countries in the Indian Ocean and East and Southern Africa
  • Strategic oil storage reserve for African country and Indian Ocean Islands in the vicinity
  • Installation of facilities to develop the bunkering business


Mozambique Terminals & Storage

We are pleased to announce the construction of oil storage terminals in Beira and Matola.

The Beira Terminal – based in the Port of Beira – and the Matola Terminal – based in the Port of Matola – will each have a capacity of approximately 50,000 m3. The terminals will be able to store refined oil products, including Gasoil (Diesel), Mogas (Gasoline), and Jet A-1.

The Terminals will be used to store and channel Galana’s oil products for both the local market and for re-export to the neighboring hinterland countries.

Phase 1 of the projects is expected to be completed in Q-3 2014.
