Iraq - Iraq Projects Terminal

The Iraq Project Terminal (IPT), or Berth 8 as it was known under the Iraq Port Authority (IPA), was given under concession to Gulftainer in 2010. Since then, the terminal has seen increased investments resulting in superior productivity, leading to its development as a first class terminal within Umm Qasr port. Today the facility has further developed into a fully operational terminal aimed at the general break bulk and project cargo segments. IPT is in full compliance with, and supports the requirements of, Iraq's fast developing Oil and Gas and Energy sectors.

The terminal has direct access to the main Basrah Highway and to the major oil fields in Southern Iraq, and is close to the Umm Qasr Logistics Centre. It has a secured and dedicated entrance from the main highway with controlled movement of vehicles, with on-site customs clearance and safe, secure general cargo storage areas.
