The article reports on the plan of Royal Vopak NV to build a new oil terminal at the Port of Amsterdam with construction work for the 620,000 cubic meters commencing in 2011. The terminal is to have two quays for ships and Vopak predicts total capacity to over 1.1 million cubic meters. According to Vopak chairman John Paul Broeders, tighter product specifications and increased diversification of oil product will provide an excellent chance for the firm to invest in this gasoline storage.
