PROJECT SUMMARY
Project start: Jan 1970
Project completion: Jan 1970
Sectors: Infrastructure
Project location: Ikot Abasi, Nigeria

CARES were commissioned to conduct a Marine Access Study to consider the possibility of bringing bulk cargo to a proposed Bulk Terminal at Ikot Abasi.
Royal Coral intend to develop a Bulk Terminal at Ikot Abasi, next to the existing Alscon Aluminium Smelter on the Opobo River. A channel was dredged to the aluminium smelter in 1999, with a depth of between -9m and -11mCD; however, this channel has silted up and can no longer be used by seagoing vessels.
The objective of the Marine Access Study was to consider the possibility of bringing bulk cargo (dry bulk and oil products) to the proposed Bulk Terminal before the channel to the Aluminium Smelter is dredged to full depth.
The study considered the following options for marine access to a new Bulk Terminal at Ikot Abasi:

  • Direct access for sea-going vessels via Opobo River.
  • Direct access for sea-going vessels via Bonny River

  • Transhipment of vessels offshore Opobo River.
  • Transhipment of vessels in Bonny River.
  • The study also considered options for marine facilities at the Bulk Terminal.
