Fuel silos are destructible items in Just Cause 2.

See also: Fuel Depots and Fuel Shafts.


They are essentially fuel depots on a grander scale and a bit less common.

In the aftermath of destruction, most of the silos will burn so long you stay at the location, except for the ones at Pulau Berapi, which will only burn for a while, until the fire goes out.

There are three types of them:

Smaller versionEdit

Just Cause 2- settlement completion- Kampung Padang Luas 15

Small ones at Kampung Padang Luas.

About the same size as the water towers along the rooftops of Panau City. The smaller ones come in tight groups of two, usually accompanied by a structure next to them, which will explode when both silos are destroyed. These can easily be destroyed, for example by ramming them with a car. They will explode almost the same as the vertical standing fuel depots.

Large oneEdit

Fuel Silo at Pulau Berapi

One of the large silos at Pulau Berapi.

These are large cylindrical cisterns roughly the size of a 3-story building. They are pretty much destructable Oil Cisterns.

The bigger silos are usually found in groups of 3, though they may also come in groups of two. These are impervious to small arms fire, but will be damaged by any explosives. Vehicle mounted weapons such as miniguns and rockets will take them out quite efficiently as well.

Other similar industrial sites uses indestructible oil cisterns made out of concrete.

5 special large ones in a missionEdit

Kem Gunung Dataran Tinggi has 5 special silos during the mission "Welcome to Panau". These are unusually tall and are connected to the building walls.

They are easily taken out with small arms fire. They are always destroyed by a series of explosions at the end of the mission, so there's no need to waste ammunition on them.

Their explosion shockwave extends to roughly 20 meters. You can use this to your self-explanatory advantage when soldiers are near it. Just be wary of how close you are to them. Even being at the edge of the shockwave can cause a lot of harm to Rico.


As said before, they are not very common, with just 90 of them in Panau, only being found in a select few military bases and harbours, and an even smaller amount of towns. Still, their size will make finding them quite easy. One base where they are prominently found is the Pulau Berapi port/refinery, with a large amount of silos in plain sight and ready to be demolished.

  • It has been reported that there are actually 91 of them, but it's not known which exact one that 91'st one is. Also, this needs confirmation.
