Rubis, the supplier of Jet fuel at the Argyle International Airport has announced its intention to embark on phase 2 of its construction project, regarding its Aviation facilities at the Argyle International Airport, which will include work on Stubbs Bay from August 1, 2017.
This includes the fabrication and installation of the subsea pipeline and other associated works off Stubbs Bay, from which it will supply its Argyle terminal with jet fuel via ocean going oil tankers.
The overall length of the pipeline is 722meters spanning from the tanker’s mooring position to Rubis’ pump house located at the southern end of the runway.
The pipes will pass through a valve box which will be located on the beach approximately 50meters from the shoreline. This area will be fenced, locked and appropriate signage displayed for public information and safety.
A release from the International Airport Development Company (IADC) said the work is scheduled to begin on August 1 and will run through August 31, 2017.
During this period heavy machinery will be operating and materials required for the installation will be stored on the beach. Persons are therefore asked to take note and to exercise every caution when in this area.
