03 January 2011
Iraq (Baghdad) - The Ministry of Oil of the Republic of Iraq said that Shell Global is set to build an oil pier in the southern city of Basra to facilitate the operation of oil industry developers.
The planned pier will receive oil tankers and large ships that carry oil equipment and used to dock at ports of neighboring countries, according to a press release issued by the ministry here.
The General Company for Ports of Iraq (GCPI), a subsidiary of the ministry, has developed an integrated plan including the designs of the new pier, to be located in Al-Qarna town, north Basra, on 'Shatt Al-Arab' waterway.
"The aim of the new project is to encourage the global oil companies to invest heavily in the highly-promising energy industry of Iraq," the statement quoted director of GCPI's information and public relations division Anmar Al-Safi as saying.
"The project will save much time, money and effort for both Iraq and the foreign investors," Al-Safi affirmed, noting that the oil equipment will be moved from the pier to the operation sites in a direct and faster way.
Shell has earlier this year won a lion's share in the tender to develop Majnoun oil field, the largest project in the latest round of tendering by the Iraqi Ministry of Oil. (KUNA)
