September 22 - Heavy lift specialist SAL Shipping expects business to boom in the next 12 months as oil and gas developments, including Gorgon, gain momentum.

"We expect the Cape Lambert project for Rio Tinto to happen soon and Oakajee Port is perhaps progressing at a slower pace than expected but it will happen," SAL Shipping managing-director, Berndt Olesen said. 

In July, SAL secured a contract to transport reels for the multimillion dollar Cossack Wanaea Lambert Hermes project.
