Port infrastructure has been considerably damaged due to Jan 2010 earthquake. It is reported that the entire main container wharf is lost or submerged, and a large portion of the south Pier is also damaged, however it has been partially repaired and reopened for use. The tanker Terminal Varreux is to receive emergency repairs to jetty, tanks and pipelines to enable imports to resume before existing supplies of fuel oil, gasoline, diesel and propane run out.
