photoblog image Jurong Rock Caverns

Jurong Rock Caverns

This shot shows a couple of metro gantries at the Jurong area. Not from here, is the Jurong Island, which houses the Jurong Rock Caverns. This facility opened in 2014, which is the world's first underground oil storage facility in South East Asia. 130m beneath the ground, liquid and gaseous hydrocarbons, which in turn are directly fed to Jurong Island's petrochemical refineries. To wrap one's head around the storage volume considered here, it is equivalent to about 600 Olympic sized pools and cost about a billion dollars to complete.

love how you captured the curve
I love the angle and how you've captured the train...

Amazing info about the oil facility!
Lots of valuable information here, Ayush, but I immediately thought of Chicago's "L" which I rode many times while living there for a year back in my college days.

This is a wonderful view of the metro, Ayush and the write-up with it is just mind-blowing. Thank you for the picture in my head... 600 Olympic sized pools.. wow.
Have a wonderful weekend.

I like the composition here very much with the curve of the structure. What great idea for storing the hydrocarbons.
building things is very expensive there! we have a 'metro' like that where i live, it's called 'the sky train' smile nice shot of the curves!
The angle implies you were right up there among the pillars
Wow - both to the pic and the size of that storage!
I hope it stays together when put to the test

A fine example of industrial art here, Ayush.
Ayush Basu: A chance moment being at this spot while a train rumbled above, Ray.
