Commissioned in early 2018, DRPC boasts a total storage capacity of 600 000 m3 in the shape of 27 tanks, enabling the company to store all types of oil products (including diesel, SP95, SP98, heating oil, jet fuel and biofuels). DRPC receives products via its two waterway-sea wharves and its three connections to the TRAPIL network of Le Havre-Paris pipelines. This network also enables the shipment of finished oil products to depots in neighbouring consumption areas. DRPC has also implemented a new road station, which will supply the region’s distribution networks.
The site is an Installation Classée pour la Protection de l’Environnement (installation classified for the protection of the environment) and fully compliant with safety, security and environmental protection requirements. DRPC benefits from the expertise of its two shareholders and relies on its operational teams to ensure the quality of the stored and distributed products.
“Some €100 million and three years of work were required to convert the storage area of the former Petit-Couronne refinery into a modern and secure oil depot. We are proud of this achievement, which would not have been possible without the unfailing commitment and dedication of all of the teams,” said Hakim Britel, Chairman of DRPC.
