The first commercial underground rock caverns facility for storage of liquid hydrocarbons in Southeast Asia, the Jurong Rock Caverns (JRC) is located at a depth of 150m below the ground, and 130m beneath Banyan Basin on Jurong Island.
The JRC will store 1.47 million m3 of liquid hydrocarbons such as crude oil and condensate. By utilising subterranean storage spaces, the JRC not only ensures the security of the products in storage, it will also translate to a saving of approximately 60-hectare of land, which could be used to house higher value-added activities such as petrochemicals manufacturing activities. As a commercial underground storage facility, the JRC will complement and enhance the existing network of integrated infrastructure developed by JTC on the Island, and further reinforce Singapore's position as a leading global energy and chemicals hub.
