LONDON (ICIS)--The development of a greenfield liquid bulk storage terminal in the port of Le Havre, France, by chemical tanker shipping services provider Odfjell Terminals will contribute to growth in product flows, Carl Odfjell, vice president of business development & project management, said on Monday.

“The terminal will facilitate growth in product flows both locally in the industrial zone and along the River Seine,” he said.

“The main intended products are petrochemicals and petroleum related products such as base oils and lube oils. On completion of the study full scope should identify all products for first phase,” Odfjell added.

Odfjell Terminals is a subsidiary the Norwegian shipping and storage firm Odfjell.

Odfjell Terminals said a feasibility study will be carried out for a terminal consisting of approximately 200,000 cubic metres (cbm) storage capacity during the first phase of the development.

The new project is located along the Grand Canal Maritime and covers around 30 hectares.

Odfjell and the Grand Port Maritime du Havre expect to finalise the project details by 1 April 2013.
