Bintulu Port is one of

the most modern and

efficient multi-purpose

ports in South East Asia.

It commenced operation

in 1983 and handles a

variety of general cargoes,

containerized cargoes, palm

oil products, liquid and dry

bulk cargoes.

With its natural deep

sea harbour, Bintulu Port

is the import and export

gateway for Sarawak, Brunei,

Indonesia, Philippines, and

the East ASEAN Growth

Area (BIMP-EAGA) region.

It is East Malaysia’s largest

container port and it is the

2nd largest LNG export

terminal in the world after

Qatar Gas.

In 2013, Bintulu handled

43.8 million tonnes of cargo,

including LNG (25.5 mil),

crude oil (3.9 mil), and

containerized cargo (4 mil).

This is expected to increase

as the Sarawak Corridor

for Renewable Energy

(SCORE) is implemented,

with additional shipments of

aluminium, pulp and paper,

silicon, manganese, fertilizer,

downstream timber, and

agro produce & products.
