Crude oil

Crude oil tanks capacity - eleven tanks with a capacity of 80,000 m3 - five tanks with a capacity of 72,000 m3 - four tanks with a capacity of 40,000 m3 Total tanks capacity = 1 400 000 m3


Oil derivates tanks capacity - one tank with a capacity of 20,000 m3 - one tank with a capacity of 15,000 m3 - four tanks with a capacity of 10,000 m3 - one tank with a capacity of 5,000 m3 Total tanks capacity = 80 000 m3 m3


The JANAF oil pipeline and storage system was built as an international crude oil transportation system from the Omišalj Terminal to both local and foreign refineries in South Eastern and Central Europe. Capacity: 34 mtpa. Length: 622 kilometers. Diameter: 20 inches, 26 inches, 36 inches, 28 inches.


The Omišalj terminal is located on the northern side of the island of Krk near the town of Omišalj and is used to receive, store and ship crude oil and oil derivatives. The Omišalj Terminal area includes two berths for receiving and shipping tankers with crude oil or oil derivatives and associated equipment.

Depth outside Omisalj bay is approximately  55 m, inside bay 30 m with mud and rocks bottom, width at the entrance to bay approximately 700 m. The port of Omisalj is approached by Vela Vrata, the main channel, which connects Kvarner Bay with the Bay of Rijeka. A Traffic Separation Scheme has been established in Vela Vrata.

Large tankers proceed from Vela Vrata to the N part of Rijeka Bay, making a large turn before steering for Omisalj inlet.
Chemical tankers and gas carriers may follow a more direct route for the entrance to Sepen Bay.
The approach channels to both terminals are marked by lights and light buoys.

JANAF oil terminal is well sheltered. Two T-shaped steel platforms every 127 m long fitted with fenders and sliding hooks and equipped with four 16″ unloading arms for discharging crude oil.

Distance between each pier: 370 m.
Height of platforms: 7.35 m above MSL.
Minimum depth alongside: 29 m.
Maximum draft: 27 m.
Maximum DWT: 350.000.

Each berth equipped with four 16″ cargo arms connected to a 42″ pipeline. The discharge rate is 10.000 t/h. Employment of fire fighting tugs during operations is compulsory.
A gangway with an adjustable ladder is provided by the terminal.
A revolving crane of 2 t SWL is mounted on the top of the gangway tower.

According to JANAF rules, the vessel is bound to discharge her cargo within 30 running hours (36 hrs if performing COW) weather permitting otherwise the tanker is to pay berthage and fire fighting tugs.
Allowed time is counted from first-line moored till the last line unmoored.

The maximum tidal range in the bay is normally 1.1 m (3’06”), but the height of the tide is much affected by wind conditions. In strong SE winds, it may be increased by up to 0.6 m (2′) and in strong NE winds, the low water may be as much as 0.3 m (1′) below.

The currents near the terminals are negligible, but in Vela Vrata the S-going current may attain a velocity of 4 knots during strong NE winds.
Winds from NE and SE prevail. During the winter season NE winds Bora can reach hurricane force; SE winds may form waves of up to 3 m in Rijeka Bay.

Omisalj | Janaf Terminal


An area with depths of 54 to 62 m is enclosed by the following points:
a) 45°14’1 N ; 14°29’4 E
b) 45°15’1 N ; 14°27’1 E
c) 45°17’8 N ; 14°28’0 E
d) 45°16’1 N ; 14°31’8 E

For vessels carrying liquefied gas anchorage place is in radius 1,5 NM from position 45°11,1’N ; 14°28,7’E. The bottom is muddy and the holding ground fairly good. However, during NE strong gales (in winter) vessels may be forced to leave this anchorage and seek shelter under the lee of Krk Island.

Pilot is on VHF CH 16/9. Boarding position is about 6 miles NE of Point Jablanac. However, tanker over 200.000 DWT may be boarded on request in the North part of Kvarner, approximately 5 miles SSW of Point Prestenice light.

    Expressions of Interest for Zagreb Container Terminal

    One of the cardinal sins in the introduction of new port capacity is to deliver it before it is required. All the more so, if government has previously encouraged foreign direct investment into the same sector and it is clear that this has delivered adequate capacity for the long term. The net result of this is the undermining of the original investment and its prospects of fair returns; the delivery into the marketplace of excess capacity which negatively impacts pricing; and – probably most damaging of all – sending out a signal to potential sources of FDI worldwide that the government will not necessarily act in the best interest of investors. Investor 1 basically becomes forgotten in the pursuit of the next tranche of money. A good example of this type of situation is in Rijeka, Croatia where the government has recently launched a call for Expressions of Interest for its Zagreb Container Terminal. This project follows hot on the heels of the recent completion of an extensive investment program at the Brajdica Terminal Container Terminal, Rijeka, where the port authority has added a new deep water quay and related infrastructure, with an investment value of approximately E35m. Image: Zagreb Quay scheme International ConZagreb Quaytainer Terminal Services Inc, the newly appointed concession holder, has invested a further E30m in new ship-to-shore cranes, rubber-tyred gantries for yard operations, rail mounted gantries for intermodal rail operations and extensive terminal operating and other IT systems. In 2013, total container throughput at the terminal was in the order of 131,000 TEU and the terminal’s fully developed throughput capability is 750,000 TEU per annum. With traffic now only increasing annually on a single digit basis in Rijeka it is clear that the introduction of a new container terminal platform will not be appropriate for many years to come. Further, the launch of the Zagreb Container Terminal project has a double irony to it in that container capacity in the Rijeka area is designed mainly to provide easy access to the Central and South East European countries such as Hungary, Slovakia, Southern Austria, Germany and Serbia, but while the roads are generally excellent in this respect the government has lagged behind in delivering on promises to upgrade the rail system to facilitate intermodal rail operations. Block train services to Budapest and Belgrade have started to operate from the Brajdica Terminal and track upgrades are underway to ensure the competitive position of intermodal rail services from/to Rijeka. The commencement of third party private rail operators is underway but it is essential this process is fast-tracked as prescribed under EU law. Blinkered view Part of the problem with the proposed delivery of the Zagreb Container Terminal appears to be that it is taking place in the context of the World Bank backed Rijeka Gateway Project, a program which has seen the institutional reform of the Port Authority of Rijeka in line with the landlord model and which in an infrastructure context basically aims to remodel the port-city of Rijeka. The Zagreb Container Terminal is part of this program and its proposed development appears to be proceeding according to a timetable that takes no account of recent market developments and realities. Any new market study would inevitably suggest the need for a rethink in terms of this project’s timing. This, in turn, would avoid the unnecessary expenditure of tens of millions of Euros in basic infrastructure provision and at the same time have the major asset of proving that the Croatian Government is responsible in how it treats its foreign investors. Given that Croatia, out of all the South East European countries, has been the country most seriously hit by the financial crisis in terms of FDI flows – it fell from $6bn in 2008 to $432m in 2010 – the country has every incentive to work on promoting its image regarding the successful realization of FDI projects. Undertaking the right studies to schedule projects is clearly an essential part of this. Source: Port Strategy
