Our controlled international-expansion strategy includes the development of an individual-terminal network–through acquisitions and joint ventures with local private companies, consortiums and government entities.

Joint ventures to expand visions

Although we have the ability to expand into any new business territory, Oiltanking does not. Instead, we believe in focusing on our core activities and developing partnerships to make us stronger in other areas.

We’ve already established several many excellent partnerships worldwide. Our role in each one varies, depending on the strengths of the partner involved - from expertise to supplying capital to providing human resources.

We see partnerships as a means to build our capabilities while remaining focused on our core business. And, while we expand, we’re always careful to grow within the boundaries of our human and financial abilities.

The Oiltanking name has become synonymous with trusted performance in the handling of bulk liquids – whether in the oil-derivatives or chemicals markets – and we want to maintain and expand that reputation.
