Shell Aviation have signed an agreement with Emarat and BP to build a jet fuel terminal at the Jebel Ali Free Zone in Dubai, and a pipeline to supply Dubai International Airport.

The construction contracts were signed in Dubai on behalf of Shell Aviation by Patrick Romeo, Regional Vice-President, Shell Aviation; Rashid Al Shamsi, General Manager, Emarat and Chris Tabet, Regional Business Development Manager, BP.

The agreement is an important step in Shell Aviation's strategy to help Dubai expand its airport capacity to meet growing demand in the Gulf region. A new airport to be built at Jebel Ali is expected to receive its first passengers in 2007 and have six runways operating by 2020. By 2007 it is expected the number of passengers travelling in and out of Dubai will almost double, from 21 to 40 million, and by 2020 these figures could more than triple, to 130 million.
Patrick Romeo, Shell Aviation Regional Vice-President for Africa, Middle East and South Asia said: "The strategic location of a fuel storage depot at Jebel Ali will allow Shell to serve customers using both the new and the existing airport. By partnering with other fuel suppliers Shell will be able to share the cost and effort to build new supply chain capacity.

"We are delighted to help the Government of Dubai fulfil its aspirations for the region, and Shell will work with other businesses to achieve this."
