Tanjung Langsat Port
Tanjung Langsat Port (TLP) is the third port in
Johor, Malaysia, designed to complement the Port of Tanjung Pelepasand Johor Portin Pasir Gudang. Positioning itself as Southeast Asia's premier speciality terminal, it handles bulk cargosuch as liquefied petroleum gas(LPG) and dangerous chemicals.
Initiated in 1995 and commencing partial operation in 2003, TLP is situated 12
nautical miles (22 km) from the international shipping lane, 8 km from Johor Port, and 45 kilometres from Johor Bahru. It has 3.09 square kilometres (763 acres) of land within the port area and a 4.5 kilometre shoreline fronting the Straits of Johor.
Facilities and services
When completed in 2012, Tanjung Langsat Port facilities will include:
* L-shaped twin-berth
jettycapable of handling medium-range tankers of up to DWT|30,000|metric|first=yes;
* Marine support base;
Deep sea fishingterminal/multi-purpose wharves;
The main activities of the port are:
Petrochemicals and liquid bulk handling;
* Marine support base;
* Deep-sea fishing and multipurpose/
* Processing and storage of petroleum based and liquid bulk cargo;
* International cruise center.
Petrochemical industries will account for 60% of the activities at the complex, with
gasproduction, steel-making, and marine and marine-related industries making up the remaining 40%. Several chemical companies operating in the Pasir Gudang industrial area have opened new manufacturing facilities at TLP due to space constraints in Pasir Gudang.
TLP is targeting petroleum-based liquid bulk cargo from the industrial area around Pasir Gudang as well as the adjacent "Tanjung Langsat Industrial Estate" developed for petrochemical facilities. The 18.87 square kilometre industrial estate was developed by Johor Corporation, especially for heavy industries, including
petroleumand gas. Johor Corporation, the investmentarm of the Johor state government, holds 95% equity interest in the company, while the remaining 5% is held by its wholly owned subsidiary, TPM Technopark Sdn. Bhd.
TLP is expected to face stiff competition from existing integrated petrochemical complexes in
Pahangand Terengganu, as well as overseas, namely the Banyan Logistics Hubon Singapore's Jurong Island, and the Majisan Port, off the coast of the Shanghai Chemical Industry Park(SCIP) at Caojing, China. All are vying to become the Asian chemical logisticshub. Currently, large chemical carriers usually transfer cargo to smaller ships at Singapore or Ulsan, South Korea. However, TLP's deepwater facility will lend itself a comparative advantage.
Because of its proximity, TLP is a competitor of the
Port of Singaporewhere complaints over high cost have been rather persistent. Already, TrafiguraPte. Ltd., a Swiss-based oil trading company, has planned to shift the bulk of its petroleum storage operations from Singapore to TLP, once the construction of the petroleum storage facilities is completed in 2008. According to Ichiro Tokuhashi, its managing director, operating at TLP would be 60% cheaper.

Tanjung Langsat industrial complex in Johor attracts RM8.3b investments11 May, 2005
The Tanjung Langsat Industrial Complex in Pasir Gudang, Johor has so far managed to attract more than RM8.3 billion worth of investments.
Tanjung Langsat Port Sdn Bhd (TLPSB) Chairman Tan Sri Muhamad Ali Hashim said demand for the port facilities and services for handling bulk cargo is expected to rise rapidly including from foreign companies due to its role as an integrated petrochemical complex.
Tanjung Langsat Port (TLP) is designed to handle bulk cargo like liquefied petroleum gas and dangerous chemicals. It has been ready for commercial operations since 2003.
Petrochemical industries will account for 60% of the activities at the complex, with gas production, steel-making and marine and marine-related industries making up the remaining 40%.
"Several chemical companies operating in the Pasir Gudang Industrial area have opened new manufacturing facilities at TLP due to space constraints in Pasir Gudang," said Muhamad Ali, who is also Chief Executive of Johor Corp (JCorp).
TLPSB is a subsidiary of JCorp.
He said the port's strongest selling point is the seafront location of the petrochemical complex, the proximity of Johor Port and Tanjung Pelepas and an abundance of raw materials for the petrochemical industry.
He said four plants which have started operations in the complex produce about 370,000 tonnes of palm-based fatty acids each year and the capacity is expected to increase shortly to 500,000 tonnes.
JCorp had invested more than RM400 million in the port's development and invested another RM80.9 million to develop the necessary port facilities and supporting infrastructure.
TLP now possesses a modern L-shaped twin berth jetty capable of handling medium range tankers of up to 30,000 deadweight tonnes (dwt).
The main strength of TLP is its vast land banks of more than 280ha, including 120ha that are to be reclaimed.
The port also has the unique advantage of having a long stretch of water frontage of 4.5km for future expansion of its wharves and jetties.
