THE BADAGRY ADVANTAGE

/ Cargo Facilities
Container Terminal

Eventually covering a total area of approximately 149 ha, the initial quay length will be 775 m (regarded as two standard berths), and extended in four steps over time resulting in 2,600 m of operational quay. The terminal will have a total yard depth of 500 m. extending from the quay line. The terminal will be initially designed to accommodate the 8,000 TEU large S-Class vessel and will be expanded over time to eventually accommodate EEE class vessels of 18,000 TEU in the long term.

General Purpose Terminal (GPT)

The general purpose terminal (GPT) is expected to handle various types of cargo ranging from break-bulk to Ro-Ro (roll-on/roll-off). Annual throughput at this terminal will vary depending on construction phases of the port as well as market demands for various cargo types. However, it is not expected at this stage that the general purpose terminal will increase in size, beyond the initially envisioned 325 m of quay wall and 15 ha of yard. However, an additional storage area of 9 ha can be added at any stage immediately south of the area and a further off-dock area can be provided in the planned

Offshore Supply Base

Offshore oil and gas activities require extensive on-shore supporting facilities for supplies, storage, fuel, materials and equipment that need to be frequently shipped in relatively small quantities to the offshore sites. Additionally, waste materials, equipment that is no longer needed or is in need of repair, and offshore staff, may come to port on return journeys.

With an initial footprint of 25 ha with 500 m of quay length located inside the lee breakwater, the offshore supply base (OSB) will play a key role in providing these services and supplies and to ensuring the long-term viability of Nigeria’s burgeoning oil and gas economy. Long-term, it is expected that the OSB will grow to over 1,000 m of quay length with nearly 50 ha of dedicated yard.

Quay length (m) 1,700
Terminal Area (Ha) 50
Design Vessel Various – up to 250m in length
Refined Products Terminal

The Refined Products Terminal will be one of the largest in existence in Nigeria. Initially expected to operate with one jetty and 60-80 ha of tank farm space, storage capacity for phase 1 will be approximately 210 kMT but eventually expand to 630 kMT once the planned refinery operation begins. The Refined Products terminal will have a dedicated jetty with loading platform situated in the port on the inner side of the main breakwater. The refined products will then be pumped using the vessel’s on-board pumps to a tank farm approximately 1km from the jetty.

Annual throughput (bbd) 100,000
Jetties (no) 1
Tank farm area (ha) 60 - 80
Storage capacity (kT) At least 210
Design vessel Panamax Tanker (60,000 DWT)
Products Gasoline (PMS), diesel (AGO), jet product (DPK)
Long term port development requirements
Jetties (no) 2 or more
Refinery (Ha) 360
Design vessel VLCC (300,000 DWT)

The Port is being designed with the following depths in mind

In addition to the draft of the vessel and the allowance for under keel clearance, the design depth alongside each berth also needs to take account of additional factors such as dredging tolerance. All berths will be designed with scour protection provided at the maximum design depth.

The design depths are presented in the table below:
