Cape Town's dry-dock is the largest in Africa and The Port of Cape Town is a main centre for the repair and upgrade of upstream offshore vessels and equipment.

It offers a strategic location on the south-western corner of the African continent, with a large graving dry-dock and the upstream services established over more than 30 years.

Ship & rig maintenance

Successful exploration in Sub-Saharan Africa has resulted in increased activity in oil and gas across the region. South Africa is well placed to serve as a permanent hubproviding services and expertise for oil and gas sector.

“South Africa has a number of ports with deep water access and dry-dock facilities serviced by a well-developed marine engineering and services sector,” says SAOGA.


Cape Town is currently a major logistics and distribution point for materials and equipment into the West African oilfields, and is expected to also become a major logistics player in East Africa oil fields.
