an 8.5 meter draft. Plans are under way to expand the quay length to 1000 meters.
LADOL Free Zone was built out of a disused swamp on a secure island inside Apapa Port. This new, state-of-the-art Free Zone is strategically located at the point of entry into Lagos Harbour and it provides fully serviced facilities and heavy infrastructure designed and deployed to support the largest industrial projects in the world.
LADOL is committed to the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals and has been developed for the long-term to support sustainable industrialization across Nigeria, to drive both local and global prosperity.
LADOL is the first and only base specifically designed to meet the logistical needs of deep water offshore oil and gas operations and projects in and around Nigeria. As the first and only facility of its kind in Lagos, LADOL was created to ensure that the nation of Nigeria benefits directly from its deep offshore oil and gas reserves. By providing world-class facilities and services, LADOL will encourage the multinational firms exploiting the deep water oil reserves to utilize Nigerian companies to service their operations, creating jobs for Nigerians as well as ensuring training, knowledge and technology transfer into the country.
LADOL is a fully integrated, independent and secure base anchored around a 200m quay with a deep, 8.5m draft. The QUAY provides stevedoring and cargo handling with efficient discharge and loading of goods.
The BASE provides all logistical services, including warehousing, material handling equipment, fabrication and assembly yards, people management, catering, bunkering of fuel and water, facilities for the supply of bulk materials, a helicopter base, open and closed storage facilities, sewage and waste treatment, potable water and medical services.
The location of the Base and the services it offers will enable operator and contractors to maximize their operational efficiency. Manufacturers setting up on the base will find LADOL has excellent infrastructure, including telecommunications, sewage systems, water, fuel and transportation network. It also offers top-quality accommodations and recreational facilities.
