Tela will double fuel storage, expand port

Kampuchea Tela Co Ltd, one of the Kingdom’s largest fuel importers and distributors, has announced that it will double its petrol storage facilities, increasing their capacity to 200 million litres, a local media outlet reported yesterday.

Tela chairman and CEO Chhun On was quoted as saying that the increase in storage facilities was due to “increasing demand” and “the potential to import high quality gasoline from abroad.”

He also announced that the company would invest in expanding its 200-metre port terminal located within Sihanoukville Autonomous Port.
