Lyttelton Port Oil and Gas Berth Testing Underway

Lyttelton Port of Christchurch is planning to construct a new Oil and Gas berth as replacement for the existing berth which was severely damaged due to the Christchurch earthquakes.

LPC has today started conducting a series of tests from a floating barge in the Inner Harbour which is visible to those overlooking the area. The testing is to better understand the seabed profile to ensure an appropriate dredging operation can be conducted.

The berth will be redeveloped slightly North from its existing position and this requires some minor dredging to accommodate the vessels that will use it.

All fuel for Christchurch is imported through Lyttelton Port and the oil berth is vital infrastructure needed to service the city and the region.

Constructing this new Oil and Gas berth is part of LPC’s focus on providing port services that meet the region’s needs and support Canterbury’s long term trade growth.

LPC will provide further updates about the Oil and Gas berth development as the project proceeds.
