Oman and Iran will drive the majority of the growth in the oil storage industry in the Middle East between 2018 and 2022, contributing more oil storage capacity than any other country in the region, according to leading data and analytics company GlobalData.

The company's report: ‘Oil Storage Industry Outlook in Middle East to 2022' shows that in 2017, the Middle East had an oil storage capacity of 80,005.7 thousand cubic meters (mcm) and accounts for 5.9% of the total global oil storage capacity.

The Middle East is expected to have a total planned storage capacity of 14,931.9 mcm by 2022, and will account for 22.0% of global planned storage capacity. It is expected to increase storage capacity from 80,005.7 mcm in 2017 to 95,833.2 mcm in 2022 at an Average Annual Growth Rate (AAGR) of 3.6%.

An estimated capital expenditure (capex) of US$6.9bn on new build projects is anticipated in the Middle East, of which, more than 60% will be spent by Iran and Iraq and the remaining by the other countries in the region, during the forecast period.

Among countries in the Middle East, Oman leads in terms of capacity additions of new build oil storage projects. The country has planned investment of around US$1.31bn by 2022. The country's oil storage capacity is expected to increase from 1,659.2 mcm in 2017 to 7,305.8 mcm in 2022 at an AAGR of 29.6%.

Soorya Tejomoortula, Oil & Gas Analyst at GlobalData, explains: “Oman is expanding its oil storage capacity to increase crude oil and petroleum products exports from the country. New storage terminals are being planned along its coast line for easy access to the oil markets in South Asia, Africa, and Far East.”
