Storage & Distribution Workgroup

The ARDA Storage & Distribution Workgroup serves to work with Members, sponsors and other stakeholders to maintaining safe, secure, reliable and environmentally sound Terminal/Depot, Pipeline and Port operations across their respective facilities. The Workgroup also focuses on ensuring potential hazards are systematically identified and risks associated with these hazards are managed in a manner that ensures Members and their stakeholders are protected.

This Workgroup is dedicated to:

  • Promoting industry best practices in operations & maintenance of terminals, depots, pipelines and ports for liquid hydrocarbons and LPG
  • Fostering a framework for the funding and development of world-class storage & distribution facilities across Africa
  • Developing processes to enhance supply chain and infrastructure safety, reliability and efficiency
  • Promoting suitable end-of-life planning for downstream projects


Registration is now open for our Virtual Storage & Distribution Workshop taking place on Thursday 27th April at 9.00am (GMT)

The theme of this workgroup is “Make the Storage & Distribution chain more reliable to ensure energy security and optimise costs”. The session will take place via Zoom.
