Iraq to build 99 jetties in Faw Port

Iraq intends to build 99 jetties in its Grand Faw Port to make it the largest container terminal in Western Asia, an official has said.

Zainab Al-Musawi, a member of the Iraqi Parliament’s oil and gas committee, said the plan is to construct six large piers for tankers and large vessels along with those smaller jetties that will handle mainly junk cargo.

She told the Iraqi Aliqtisad News website Tuesday that those piers would have a capacity to handle nearly 350,000 bpd of crude , adding that the plan also includes the construction of giant tanks with a storage capacity of 300,000 bpd.

“Faw Port will have 99 jetties and 6 large piers…this means it will be the largest container terminal in West Asia, surpassing Dubai’s Jebel Ali Port which has 67 jetties…this port will largely boost Iraq’s logistics industry,” she said.

South Korea’s Daewoo E&C is executing phase 1 of the Southern Faw Port under a $2.6 billion contract it won 3 years ago.

Revelation 18:11-20

“And the merchants of the earth weep and mourn over her, because no one buys their cargoes any more— 12 cargoes of gold and silver and precious stones and pearls and fine linen and purple and silk and scarlet, and every kind of citron wood and every article of ivory and every article made from very costly wood and bronze and iron and marble, 13 and cinnamon and spice and incense and perfume and frankincense and wine and olive oil and fine flour and wheat and cattle and sheep, and cargoes of horses and chariots and slaves and human lives. 14 The fruit you long for has gone from you, and all things that were luxurious and splendid have passed away from you and men will no longer find them. 15 The merchants of these things, who became rich from her, will stand at a distance because of the fear of her torment, weeping and mourning, 16 saying, ‘Woe, woe, the great city, she who was clothed in fine linen and purple and scarlet, and adorned with gold and precious stones and pearls; 17 for in one hour such great wealth has been laid waste!’ And every shipmaster and every passenger and sailor, and as many as make their living by the sea, stood at a distance, 18 and were crying out as they saw the smoke of her burning, saying, ‘What city is like the great city?’ 19 And they threw dust on their heads and were crying out, weeping and mourning, saying, ‘Woe, woe, the great city, in which all who had ships at sea became rich by her wealth, for in one hour she has been laid waste!’ 20 Rejoice over her, O heaven, and you saints and apostles and prophets, because God has pronounced judgment for you against her.”

John 3:16 “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life.
