Marginal rise in New Mangalore Port’s cargo handling in Q1
BusinessLine


Quote:
MANGALORE, JULY 3:
The cargo handling at New Mangalore Port Trust registered a marginal increase in the first three months of the current fiscal.

The port handled 8.61 million tonnes of cargo in the first quarter against 8.53 mt in the corresponding period a year ago, a growth of 0.93 per cent.

Sources in NMPT attributed this marginal growth to the decrease in the cargo handling by one of the main users of the port.

MRPL

The cargo handling of Mangalore Refinery and Petrochemicals Ltd, which is a main user, came down by 12.05 per cent in crude and 15.94 per cent in products shipment during the first quarter.

The port handled three mt of crude in the first quarter against 3.41 mt.

MRPL’s product despatch from the port stood at 1.43 mt (1.70 mt) during the period.

It may be mentioned here that MRPL was forced to shutdown its units in April following the scarcity of water to run its refinery operations.

The two-week shutdown had affected the production at MRPL.

FERTILISER

The fertiliser handling at the port registered a growth of 119 per cent during the quarter.

The port handled 1.69 lakh tonnes of fertiliser (77,155 tonnes) during the period.

There was also increase in the handling of coal cargo at the port. Sources said the handling of coal for Udupi Power Corporation Ltd registered a growth of 20 per cent.

COAL

The port handled 6.71 lakh tonnes (5.55 lakh tonnes) of coal cargo for Udupi Power during the period. Added to this, various other private industries in the hinterland imported 9.91 lakh tonnes (6.95 lakh tonnes) of coal during the period.

SPM(SIngle Point Mooring).??

SOURCE

Quote:
One factor related to MRPL’s imports of Iranian crude during the monsoons is that the New Mangalore Port cannot receive vessels beyond 85,000 tonnes capacity.

SPM

The single point mooring system (SPM) that can receive very large crude carriers (VLCCs), is ‘practically ready but yet to be commissioned’.

“Iran is sending crude in vessels of 1.30 lakh tonnes, which cannot come to the jetty, therefore, SPM is important. If SPM comes up, we can take it,” he said.
What is this SPM(Single Point Mooring) System.. Is it a separate berth there..

MRPL may start trial operation of single-point mooring by month-end

Quote:
The single point mooring (SPM) facility of MRPL is likely to be put into trial operation by July-end.

Mr P.P. Upadhya, Managing Director of MRPL, said SPM facility is almost ready near New Mangalore Port.

“We hope to start the trial operation of SPM by month-end. We want to receive some amount of crude through this (SPM) from first week of August,” he said.

(An SPM is a loading buoy anchored offshore. It serves as a mooring point and interconnect for ships loading or offloading crude. They can handle ships of any size.)

Stating that the company has sought cavern facility of ISPRL (Indian Strategic Petroleum Reserve Ltd) in Mangalore to store crude oil, he said MRPL wants cavern capacity of more than 0.3 million tonnes. That is the capacity of one very-large crude carrier ship.

“Exact volumes are not yet worked out. However, it will be not less than 0.3 mt,”, he said.

To a query on Iranian companies giving insurance coverage to ships bringing crude to India, he said now Indian ships are not getting insurance cover following sanctions on Iran.

Last two months, Iranian companies gave insurance coverage to the ships on CIF (cost, insurance and freight) basis. (This means the shipper has to pay the cost of shipment to the ship, insurance cost of cargo and freight cost up to destination port.)

In Mangalore, the company cannot bring ships of more than 85,000 tonnes during monsoon because of draught. But Iranian ships are more than 1.35 lakh tonnes.

Commissioning of single-point mooring will help in bringing crude in such ships, he said.

Stating that India has got waiver from the US for Iranian import, he said whichever country has made a significant reduction in their crude offtake, have been given waiver.
This NEWS looks like a landmark in NMPT history.. This facility will enhance the per day capacity of NMPT

I am not sure whether NMPT has plan for developing offshore deep-sea terminals except for Single Point Mooring (SPM) offshore crude oil terminal. We don't know how LNG terminal will be designed.

The state has a plan to develop a mini port at Padubidre. I am not sure whether this will be a inland/dry port requiring considerable land acquisition or a reclaimed-land port or a offshore deep-water/deep-sea port. Vizhinjam in Kerala has deep-sea container terminal.

Kannur industries explore routing cargo via New Mangalore Port

Quote:
MANGALORE, JULY 20:
Representatives from Kannur’s trade and industry body are exploring the possibilities of utilising New Mangalore Port for their export-import needs.

Mr P. Tamilvanan, Chairman of NMPT (New Mangalore Port Trust), said that Kannur region of north Kerala is closer to New Mangalore. A delegation of the Kannur-based North Malabar Chamber of Commerce, headed by its office-bearers, visited the port on Thursday and held discussions with the port authorities.

There is good potential for handling cargoes such as timber, edible oil, coir and textiles from north Kerala region through New Mangalore Port. The container freight station of the Central Warehousing Corporation at Kannur can be used for routing the container cargo from that region, he said.

The delegation also discussed issues related to the arrival of vessels and handling charges at the port. The port will discuss these issues with the agents in Mangalore and take steps to handle cargo from Kannur region, he said.

Quoting Mr Vinod Narayan, President of the chamber, Mr Tamilvanan said the he has assured to prevail upon the exporters and importers from Kannur region to mobilise cargo through NMPT, which is near to them.

MRPL set to commission offshore moor in August

Single Point Mooring will enable firm to receive crude in very large crude carriers
Quote:
Mangalore Refinery and Petrochemicals Ltd (MRPL), an ONGC company, is all set to commission the Single Point Mooring (SPM) system off the New Mangalore Port in August, will enable it to receive crude oil in very large crude carriers (VLCC) for the first time for its refinery at Mangalore.

MRPL presently buys crude in Aframax vessels that can bring about 650,000 barrels of crude. The commissioning of SPM will enable MRPL to receive 250,000 tonnes at a time, P P Upadhya, managing director, MRPL, said.
The Single Point Mooring is a facility in the sea that will help receive crude oil in very large crude carrier tankers. Already refineries in Kochi, Vadinar and Jamnagar use SPM system to receive crude oil.

“SPM is ready for commissioning. We are waiting for the approval from the ministry and we wish to start the system on a trial basis by the first week of August. It will be fully operational by January 2013,” he told Business Standard.

MRPL has invested Rs 1,044 crore on setting up the SPM. The boards of MRPL and ONGC approved the project in June and July, 2010, respectively. The construction of the project was entrusted to Engineers India. The company has laid a 17-km long pipeline under the seabed off New Mangalore Port where a VLCC offloads the crude and transport it to the refinery at Surathkal near Mangalore, Upadhya said.

He said, MRPL would use the storage tanks of Indian Strategic Petroleum Reserve Ltd (ISPRL) in Mangalore to store crude oil. Until ISPRL’s storage tanks are constructed, the company would use its own storage tanks, he said.

MRPL is presently implementing Phase III of the refinery expansion with the objective of increasing the refining capacity to 15 MMTPA from 9 MMTPA. It aims to process more of low price high sulphurôhigh acid, heavy crude oils, increasing the distillate yield by upgrading low value black oils, producing value added products like propylene and upgrade of its total diesel pool to superior (Euro IIIV) grade. The estimated cost of the project is Rs 12,160.26 crore.

Upadhya said, the company would commission its polypropylene unit in January or February 2013, which will mark completion of its Phase-III expansion. Polypropylene unit work has been integrated with the Phase III project at an estimated capex of Rs 1,803.78 crore. Polypropylene project has achieved a progress of 80 per cent and the balance work will be completed by January next year, he said.

Engineers India Ltd (EIL) has been engaged to implement the project under open book execution methodology. Novelene Technology, Germany, has been selected licensor for the project.

Shipping ministry to complete projects amounting to Rs 15,000 crore on priority

Quote:
MANGALORE: Union Shipping ministry has taken upon itself task of completing 42 projects amounting to Rs 15,000-crore, Union Minister GK Vasan said. Reviewing progress of three major ports including New Mangalore Port at Mormugao Port Trust head quarters at Vasco on Friday, Vasan said, "For expediting implementation of projects, in the Ministry we have decided to have proper framework for review of all the projects."

Joint Secretary (Ports) will review these projects once in a fortnight and secretary (shipping) will review it once in a month; Vasan said adding at his level once in a quarter, so that any issue which can impede the progress of the project can be sorted out at the appropriate time thus ensuring that there is no delay in getting approvals and commencement of the work. In this connection, the first review for three major ports has been held in Goa, he said.

Mara Pandiyan, Chairman, MPT explaining capacity addition of MPT said port has various projects in pipeline totalling to about Rs 1,800 crore. Some of these projects are already awarded. Two major projects to be awarded this year are west of Breakwater project for iron ore exports at a cost of about Rs 1100 crore and mechanisation of berth 11 at a cost of Rs 204 crores. Mechanisation of berth 11 includes providing covered storage facility for coal.

Paul Antony, chairman, Cochin Port Trust said port has taken up various projects which will increase capacity from 20 MTPA to 51 MTPA by 2017. P Tamilvanan, chairman, NMPT highlighting achievements stated that cargo traffic as well as the number of ships has shown a positive growth. NMPT has emerged as largest LPG handling port in India with 46% share as also the largest coffee exporting port with 47% of the total exports from India

MRPL’s mooring facility at New Mangalore Port may benefit both
BusinessLine


Quote:
MANGALORE, AUG. 14:
The commissioning of MRPL’s SPM facility by early September is likely to benefit both MRPL and the New Mangalore Port.

An SPM (single point mooring) is a loading buoy anchored offshore. It serves as a mooring point and as an interconnecting facility for ships loading or offloading crude oil. The facility can handle ships of any size.

MRPL (Mangalore Refinery and Petrochemicals Ltd) cannot bring ships of more than 85,000 tonnes in New Mangalore during monsoon because of limited draft. But some of its import cargoes come in ships having capacity of more than 1.35 lakh tonnes. These ships require deep draft.

Speaking to Business Line here, P.P. Upadhya, Managing Director, MRPL, said the commissioning will help in bringing crude oil in very large crude carriers (VLCCs). “Operation and maintenance contract is already in place for SPM. We are trying to commission it by August-end or by first half of September,” he said.

MRPL is setting up the SPM within the limits of the New Mangalore Port Trust at a location 16 km inside the sea. The SPM would provide draft of 30 m for handling VLCCs.

The SPM facility will help de-congest the existing jetties at the Port Trust. P. Tamilvanan, Chairman of the Port Trust, said that the SPM facility would help add more traffic to the port.

During 2011-12, the port handled 13.08 million tonnes (12.39 mt) of crude oil. He said there is an indication that the completion of phase-3 would help process 15 million tonnes of crude oil. That ultimately may go up to 18 million tonnes.

While crude oil can be handled through the SPM, the increase in product cargoes could be handled in the berths. Both of these will add to the traffic of the port, he said.

Upadhya said that SPM provides the flexibility to receive opportunity crude oil from West African and Latin American countries. (Opportunity crude oil is high-sulphur, high-acidic crude oil. Value of this crude oil is lower than the normal oil.)

Though the company is planning to commission the SPM by early September, the full benefit of it will be available only after it gets crude-oil storage facilities in the underground caverns of Indian Strategic Petroleum Reserves Ltd (ISPRL) in Mangalore. MRPL hopes that ISPRL’s caverns will be operational by 2013-14.

Upadhya said that MRPL wants cavern capacity of more than 0.3 million tonnes. A VLCC brings around that much crude oil.

New Mangalore Port growing in size and quality: NMPT chairman

MANGALORE: Major Ports in India are handling sizeable quantity of cargo and non-major ports including private ports also are developing rapidly.

New Mangalore Port is growing in size and quality, P Tamilvanan, chairman, NMPT said delivering the 66th Independence Day celebration address here. The port has been able to increase productivity including containerized cargo, liquid, dry bulk and break bulk, Tamilvanan added.

The cost of cargo handling at NMP has also come down due to competitiveness. The cruise traffic also has increased due to the fact that all required facilities have been augmented. The greenery in and around the port has gone up due to the efforts and contributions made by the deputy chairman and staff , he said, lauding contribution made by employees, including Cargo handling workers and trade union leaders in the growth of the Port.

Tamilvanan distributed cash awards to children of NMPT employees and RCHW workers, NMPT English and Kannada Medium High School and Kendriya Vidyalaya No 1, Panambur who secured the highest marks in SSLC and 12th standard examinations held in March/April, 2012. School books and uniforms were distributed to the students of Government Lower Primary School, Thannirbavi as part of the Independence Day celebration

'Poor road connectivity hits NMPT growth'

Quote:

A view of New Mangalore Port Trust.

MANGALORE, AUG 23:
The poor condition of road connectivity to New Mangalore Port Trust (NMPT) is affecting its growth.

Exporters from various sector expressed this view at an exporters’ meet, jointly organised by Karnataka Bank Ltd and the Federation of Indian Export Organisations (FIEO) here on late Wednesday evening.

Walter D’Souza, Chairman of FIEO, Southern Region, said that NMPT is poised for good growth.

However, hinterland development is possible when there is good connectivity. Because of the poor connectivity, nearly 40 per cent of its export is being done in ports in the neighbouring states, he said.

Cargo movement

Jeethan Sequeira, Managing Partner of Marinelinks (a shipping agency), said that the poor road connectivity has affected the movement of cargoes such as granite from the port.

D’Souza said that this issue has been brought to the notice of the State Government several times. Several participants opined that frequent political uncertainties in the state are affecting infrastructure development projects like this.

Nowneeth Kumar, Deputy Traffic Manager, NMPT, said that the port has been doing progress in some of the commodities, in spite of bottlenecks like this.

The port was exporting 10,000 tonnes of coffee cargo nearly six years ago. Now it is doing 1.45 lakh tonnes, which is almost 52 per cent of the coffee cargo share of India. It may be less in terms of volume, but it is significant in terms of forex earnings, he said.

Port traffic

Stating that traffic has come down in all the ports in the past 60 days, he said: “It is a trend. We have to cope up with it.”

Following NMPT’s proactive measures in marketing, a Bellary-based company has agreed to route three of its coal cargo ships through New Mangalore.

Nowneeth Kumar hoped that the coastal cargo movement of the company would provide around one million tonnes of iron ore fine cargo in the days to come. “That is a big boost to us,” he added.

D’Souza informed the meet that NMPT will convene a meeting of its users in September to discuss their issues.

M.R. Vasudeva, Airport Director, Mangalore Airport, gave an insight into the progress made in the establishment of an air cargo complex at Mangalore airport.

Development of Business Plan For New Mangalore Port Trust
Quote:
6.7.13 SEZ in port

NMPT has decided to participate in the Special Purpose Vehicle (SPV) for the development of the Mangalore Special Economic Zone (MSEZ), almost adjacent to the New Mangalore Port.

A part of the port territory (some 300 acres) is to be handed over to the SEZ and will be connected to other SEZ areas by a special dedicated corridor. The port area selected is southwest from the present KIOCL berth 8 and includes the back area behind berth near 10/11.

On the port area southwest of berth 8 (now forest) plans are made to install a LNG jetty and a liquid gas tank farm. The LNG gasification plant would in this plan be located south of and outside the port area, along the coast. Studies were made to assess the feasibility and the environmental and navigational hazards.

An extraordinary situation may eventually occur that handling of cargo becomes tax free (according to SEZ rules) while other handling outside the SEZ, remain taxable. This unequal (and fair competition disturbing) playing field for cargo handling operations may create discrimination between customers due to tax differences. Such a situation should be avoided. The consultant has no specific recommendation in this respect, other than ensuring fair competition.

The SEZ, having another principal goal and strategy than the NMPT (e.g. establishing industries), may desire to use NMPT port land for so-called “port based“ activities. This could be accepted by NMPT as far the activities are essential (core) to the ship-shore operations of the port. No secondary activities (stuffing/stripping of containers, distribution centers, product manipulation, long time storage, etc) should be allowed, no matter how attractive these activities financially may be. The NMPT should protect its prime goal (mission) and refrain from any non-core activity. The consultant nevertheless
supports the development of the SEZ as such (primarily outside port area) in view of the new cargo flows that will be generated from local industries. It is expected that in particular the container flows will further grow once the industrial operations are established.
This is 'Port based SEZ'. There is a proposal for FTWZ nearby port. Whether FTWZ is within port area or outside is not known. (FTWZ = Free Trade Warehousing Zone). And whether FTWZ and 'Port based SEZ' are the same project is also not known. Smartech Infrastructure (P) Ltd had signed a EoI for FTWZ during Karnataka GIM-=2012.
