This is in addition to the massive Forest City reclamation already going on there.

From the Tanjung Piai Integrated Petroleum and Petrochemical Hub website, the plan is to create the following:
  • A 'man-made' island
  • Total size of 3,485 acres
  • Phase 1 : 1,000 acres & Phase 2 : 1,000 acres.
  • Phase 3 & 4 : 1,485 acres
  • Each phase will take about 5 years to complete
  • Expected overall completion - 20 years
It was recently reported that Benalec Holdings Bhd has received the green light from the Department of Environment (DOE) for all three phases of its Tanjung Piai Integrated Petroleum and Petrochemical Hub and Maritime Industrial Park (TPMIP) project in Johor. The company said the DEIA approval encompassed the reclamation construction for all three phases of TPMIP, oil storage terminals and related marine facilities. “The approval also includes infrastructure components on TPMIP such as jetties, a land bridge connecting TPMIP to the mainland of Tanjung Piai, and drainage channel dredging activities in the waters of Tanjung Piai, Johor.”

Reclamation works for Phase 1 began in December last year after the relevant approvals were secured, and there has been formation of land covering more than 100 acres at the project to date.
