Oikos (UK) Ltd – No 1 Jetty – Canvey Island
The Oikos Storage Ltd terminal on Canvey Island is an important import/storage/export facility for liquid products and bunkering fuels as it is one of the few import tank farms linked to the national underground pipework network servicing airfields and other key facilities.
