APT has advised that no shipping/barges can be handled on nominated berths in Immingham until the end of the year, unless otherwise indicated. 

By working closely with the refineries, APT will always try to minimise the disruption that berth, line and tank maintenance outages cause. However, without being allowed to carry out planned and routine maintenance, unplanned and long-term outages are possible.

The planned outages are as follows:

IOT Berth 1

South Killingholme Jetty (SKJ)
To allow continued use, and until further notice, regular inspections of the white oil loading arm must be carried out.  The berth needs to be unoccupied to allow crane barge access. Where possible, natural opportunities will be taken – inspection periods are therefore not shown below.
- 0800 on 10 November to 1800 on 11 November, for preparation work for new loading arms
- 0800 on 8 December to 1700 on 10 December, for preparation work for new loading arms

Finger Pier and Terminal Supply Lines and Custody Meters
Finger Pier loading and terminal supply lines under road replacement – programme of works to be defined. There are 18 lines that come in/out of the terminal through culverts under the road.  It is not possible to thoroughly inspect these lines so there needs to be a programme of replacement. Effect on the business will be communicated as lines are taken out of service.
