Larnaca Petroleum Products Plants
 
The petroleum products plants began operating in Larnaca in the late 1940’s and are located along the Larnaca - Dhekelia Road.

Their business operation focuses around the import, storage and distribution of petroleum products to fulfil the needs of the Cyprus market. The petroleum products are transported to Cyprus via tankers that are anchored in the Larnaca bay, opposite the installations. The petroleum products are unloaded via underwater pipelines, and the whole process is subject to the strictest controls in accordance with international inspection and safety protocols.

Throughout their long-standing operation, and aware of their great responsibility, the plants have been providing local consumers with high quality fuel, continuously and safely. At the same time, they have implemented high standard of safety and environmental protection systems in combination with the impeccable professional management of their overall activities.

The installations of the petroleum products companies operate and are maintained within the strict framework of manufacturing specifications and in compliance with the internationally accepted standards. These standards are designed to secure the safety of their staff and as well as the citizens living in the area, while eliminating any environmental damage. The plants are equipped with integrated fire extinguishing systems which can operate autonomously but are also interconnected. As a result, and in case of an emergency, these systems complement each other and operate jointly. The petroleum product companies maintain and nurture a long-standing and xcellent cooperation with both the Fire Brigade and the Civil Defence Force, aiming to continually upgrade the parameters of safety in the area. Joint emergency drills focusing on how to face any major-accident hazards are organized regularly, to ensure that any possible dangers are controlled effectively and that the teams’ efforts and procedures are perfectly coordinated.
