Exporting approximately 50% of the world’s seaborne iron ore, 9% of the world’s LNG and 2.65% of the world’s solar salt*

Winning numerous awards for port management and operations, ICT and cyber security, environment and heritage programmes, corporate affairs, infrastructure development and leadership.

Pilbara Ports Authority CEO Roger Johnston says clear direction from the Board and the adoption of industry-leading practices over the past five years were the keys to success.

“High calibre people and world-leading technologies are the cornerstones of our ongoing success, allowing us to safely export more products more efficiently,” Mr Johnston said.

“We’re also lucky to work in great Pilbara communities like Dampier, Karratha, Onslow and Port Hedland where local people work for us, or closely with us, ensuring we deliver the best outcomes for industry, the region and Western Australia,” Mr Johnston said.

In addition to Dampier and Port Hedland, Pilbara Ports Authority now encompasses the Port of Ashburton and the future ports of Anketell, Balla Balla and Cape Preston East. It will also assume oversight of the Shipping and Pilotage Act 1967 ports of Port Walcott, Cape Preston, Barrow Island, Varanus Island and Onslow over the next few years.
