The two LPG storage tanks measured 50 meters long and weighed 205t. They were shipped and ALE received the tanks at Umm Qasr port.

A route survey of the 660km itinerary was carried out and highlighted some challenging crossings, such as passing through 11 bridges.

Three prime movers and 2 x 24 axle lines of conventional trailers were used with a long trailer configuration for load spreading over the 11 bridges to Badra Oil Field.

The total transit time from port to site was 12 days.
