(Business in Cameroon) - On April 28, 2021, the Port of Douala-Bonabéri officially commissioned its oil terminal. According to Véronique Moampéa Mbio, director-general of Cameroon Company of Petroleum Depots (SCDP), the XAF10 billion infrastructure presents several benefits.

The executive told the media that the first benefit is safety in the handling of the country’s supply of petroleum products. “The platform is exclusively dedicated to petroleum products’ handling operation. The second benefit is that it facilitates the offloading of petroleum products. As such, it can help reduce the operation time by about 12 hours and we intend to fully maximize this,” she added.

Following in her footsteps, Cyrus Ngo’o, MD of the Port Authority of Douala (PAD) stressed that the new terminal the Port of Douala is now compliant with international port operating standards.
