Ship Repair: Off-shore Oil & Gas Service Centre
• Numerous benefits of jointly executing the Iron Ore Expansion and Ship Repair (focused on
the off-shore Oil & Gas sector) Service Centre projects
• The new berth for Iron Ore exports and the berth for accommodating submersible and semisubmersible rigs and or a floating dock are adjacent to each other – joint construction and
dredging work will contribute to cost savings on both projects
• The two projects can compliment each other during the EIA process
• A submission to proceed on a section 56 process in respect of establishing a Ship Repair offshore Oil & Gas sector Service Centre is awaiting CE approval
• Developments in focused on the offshore Oil and Gas sector along the west coast of Africa is
creating urgency to this project
• This project forms part of SIP5
• The project hold benefits for the South African economy as well as that of the West Coast –
creating jobs, improving skill levels, improving the living conditions of local communities,
multi-plier effect of growing various industries
• Can also support the growth and development of other port related business – ie bunkering
services

S56: Off-shore Supply Base
• Following the withdrawal of UAL from entering into a lease agreement with TNPA – in
principle lease conditions of Transnet not acceptable to UAL – a fresh process needs to be
embarked on
• In accordance with the National Ports Act the S56 process provide for the establishment of a
port facility such as the planned Off-shore Supply Base aimed at serving the off-shore Oil &
Gas industry
• The TNPA Infrastructure and Light House workshops have been relocated freeing up back of
quay area to form part of the Terminal to be establish in accordance with a S56 process
• TNPA is continuing with repairs/refurbishment of the quay and filling in the gap between the
two quay – this will provide for a quay of 210m that will be more effective and safe than two
small separate quays
• The quay will be operated on a common user basis and will therefore not be included in the
S56 process
• A submission to the CE will be completed by end February seeking authority to proceed with a
S56 “Requests for Proposal” process
