Map of Oakajee Port - Common User Facilities


A deepwater port will avoid future infrastructure bottlenecks and contribute to the economic development of the region. It will enable the loading of cape sized vessels, which are the optimal vessel for the efficient transportation of iron ore. The port will service mining needs in the mid-west region of Western Australia, and is therefore an important investment supporting Australia's future economic growth.


The Australian Government has made provision for a possible equity contribution of $339 million pending further consideration of the project by Infrastructure Australia.
