Bullen Bay Port (port code: ANBLB) is medium-sized port in Curaçao, a constituent country of the Kingdom of the Netherlands. It is located 12.8 kilometers (8 nautical miles) northwest of Willemstad.
Built by Royal Dutch Shell, the port is now partly leased and operated by the Venezuelan oil company PDVSA as a storage and supply facility for the Emmastad refinery. Transshipment of crude and products are also carried out from this port. The terminal was built to facilitate economical transshipments of 1,200,00 b/d of Eastern Hemisphere crude arriving in “Very Large Crude Carriers” for storage and subsequent carriage by smaller ships to draft restricted U.S. ports. Crude can be transported from the storage tanks through pipelines to the refinery in the Port of Willemstad. Bunkering and underwater cleaning are also available.
The port has 6 T-shaped jetties with dolphins, able to handle tankers from 18,000DWT to 550,000DWT. The storage consists of three tanks of 375,000 barrels capacity each.
The port handles approximately 200 vessels annually. The maximum length of the vessels recorded to having entered this port is 276 meters.
