ISKENDERUN BAY
 
ISKENDERUN BAY
 

ISKENDERUN BAY. 36 37' N 036 07' E

Iskenderun Bay is located on the North-East end of the Eastern Mediterranean, accommodating governmental and private berths and installations. Due to their geographical proximity, these facilities include oil terminals and dry cargo ports, also serving as gateways to the Middle Eastern countries. A number of these ports and jetties were built to serve specific purposes, such as importing minerals, ores, fertilizers, and scrap and exporting iron and steel oil exports piped from Iraq and probably from Middle Asia in the near future. Iskenderun bay is now busy commercial centers and an important ports of Turkey.

FORECAST: port officials at Iskenderun state that there are two weather scenarios that pose the greatest threat to operations at the port.

The first, and most hazardous, is a southeasterly wind locally called "Yarikkaya". The winds funnel though the valley that intersects the Nur Mountains southeast of the port. The southeast winds occasionally reach 64 kt or greater. During an average year, the wind will occur about seven times during the September to April period. The effect of the strong wind is to cause ships in the anchorage to drag anchor and, in some cases, even part the anchor chain. Ships in the inner harbor must be carefully secured during such events, using tugs if necessary to keep ships at their berths. It is suggested that ships in the anchorage move southwestward about 10 nmi to a location away from the funneling and better sheltered from the strong southeasterly winds. Areas closer to shore offer better protection than those farther out. Small boating is usually canceled during Yorikkaya events. The southeasterly winds also affect the NATO fuel pier located about 3.5 nmi north of the main port. During one event, a ship securely moored to the pier was in danger of pulling the pier down as the ship was forced away from its moorings. Two tugs were required to restrain the ship before it was feasible to move it to a safe anchorage.

The second most trouble some phenomenon is a northerly wind which can reach 40 to 50 kt, and be accompanied by 6.5 to 10 ft swell at the anchorage. The effect is also felt at pier 1, because it is exposed to northerly winds and waves that pass through the harbor entrance. Ships moored to pier 1 are moved in order to avoid potential damage resulting from being forced onto the pier. According to port authorities, shelter from the northerly winds can be found across the bay about 5 nmi east of Yumurtalik.

Forecasts of these and other meteorological events are broadcast in Turkish on VHF channels 16 and 67 and updated every three hours. . (You can receive the broadcast in English on VHF if you required)

PILOTAGE : is compulsory for vessels entering or leaving the ports. , Call Pilots on VHF channels 16, or their self channels three hours before arrival at the ports.

BOTAS (CEYHAN) TERMINAL
 
BOTAS (CEYHAN) TERMINAL
 
A-BOTAS (CEYHAN) TERMINAL
OPERATED BY:
Botas Petroleum Pipeline Corporation
ADDRESS: Botas Limani, P.O.Box 73, 01944 Ceyhan-Adana, Turkey
TELEPHONE: (326) 744 55 77 / 4 lines
FAX: (326) 744 55 84
LOCATION: 36° 53' N, 35° 56' E
ABOUT BOTAS: The Head Office of Botaþ is located in Ankara. The Ankara District Management in Yapracýk - Ankara and the Ceyhan District Management in Yumurtalýk - Ceyhan both directly report to the General Directorate. Besides, the Dörtyol Operation Management is located in Dörtyol - Ýskenderun and the LNG (Liquefied Natural Gas) Import Terminal Operation Management is located in Marmara Ereðlisi - Tekirdað. Botaþ's original business of transportation of crude oil by pipelines has expanded to cover the natural gas transportation and trade activities since 1987. Hence, the company has gained a trade company identity. Currently, the company holds monopoly in import, distribution, pricing and sale of natural gas in Turkey. In 1995, the article of "to carry out all kinds of petroleum related activities such as exploration, drilling, production, transportation, storage and rafining, for the purpose of providing crude oil and natural gas from abroad" was added to the field of activities of Botaþ which had been defined as: "to construct and have constructed all types of pipelines for petroleum, petroleum products, and natural gas within and outside of Turkey; to take over, purchase or lease those pipelines that have already been built; to transport petroleum, petroleum products and natural gas through the pipelines and to purchase and sell the crude oil and natural gas transported in the pipelines."
THE IRAQ - TURKEY CRUDE OIL PIPELINE: The Iraq - Turkey Crude Oil Pipeline System transports the oil produced in Kirkuk and other areas of Iraq to the Ceyhan (Yumurtalýk) Marine Terminal. The pipeline system with an annual transport capacity of 35 Million tons was commissioned in 1976. The capacity of the line was increased to 46.5 Million tons/year through the First Expansion Project, the construction of which was started in 1983 and completed in 1984. With the completion of the Second Pipeline, which is parallel to the first one, the annual capacity reached 70.9 Million tons as of 1987. It is served by two pipelines. Total length of the pipeline is 1.876 km. 1st Line 345 km in Iraq plus 641 km in Turkey and 2nd Line 234 km in Iraq plus 656 km in Turkey.The operation of the pipeline system was suspended on August 1990, in conjunction with the embargo imposed on Iraq by the United Nations. The suspension was ceased under the agreement of UN and Iraq on May 1996 and limited oil export was allowed. Crude oil loading activities was started on December 16, 1996 according to the UN Resolution. 285,715,626 barrels (38,747,770 tons) of oil was transported in 2000 by Iraq-Turkey Crude Oil Pipeline under the United Nations Resolutions. A total of 1.008.767.195 barrels (136.077.798 ton) of Iraqi oil have been transported between December 1996 and December 2000. 230.855 Thousand barrels of oil was transported by this line in 2001
