Folan Quay and Dun Aengus Quay North presently handle the discharge of oil tankers of between 4,000 tonnes and 6,000 tonnes dwt directly to a tank farm via three 250mm underground pipelines. These pipelines serve the tank farm operated by Circle K and is located at the GHEP. This terminal was built in 2009.

Both tanker berths are protected by a modern automated fire fighting system generating foam via oscillating monitors.
