South Carolina Ports Authority (SCPA) and Georgia Ports Authority (GPA) are planning to build a terminal port in Jasper County, South Carolina, the US.

The project involves the construction of Jasper Ocean Terminal (JOT) on 607ha of land and will be developed in four phases.

The first phase is expected to cost about US$2000 million.

It includes the construction of cargo and ferry terminals, warehouses, an administrative building and related infrastructure.

Moffatt & Nichol has been appointed as design consultant, United States Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) and Dial-Cordy & Associates as environmental consultant, Kimley-Horn & Associates, Inc. as traffic consultant, Hussey, Gay, Bell & DeYoung, Inc. as surveyor, S&ME, Inc. as geotechnical and environmental consultant.

On June 24, 2013, SCPA and GPA held a meeting to file for the permitting application to Jasper County Council (JCC).

On January 26, 2015, SCPA and GPA held meeting to discuss the progress on the proposed project.

In June 2015, SCPA and GPA board held a meeting to review work completed during the 2015 fiscal year and solidify a budget and work plan for FY2016.

Subsequently, approved a 2016 fiscal year budget that includes accomplishing further studies of the site design, sediment, access corridor, and channel improvements necessary for the largest container ships, as well as efforts to recruit a third party required for completion of an environmental impact study.

SCPA and GPA will each contribute US$1.25 million to the FY2016 budget.

SCPA and GPA expect to submit permit application to JCC by fourth quarter of 2015 so that USACE can begin environmental studies on the project which is expected to take eight years.

In November 2015, SCPA and GPA signed revised joint venture agreement for the development of the Jasper Ocean Terminal. The updated agreement governs the permitting and planning process for the JOT, including the development of terminal design and supporting infrastructure, plans for financing, and execution of the operational decisions required during the permitting process.

In June 2016, the board of the Jasper Ocean Terminal approved a US$5 million budget for the fiscal year beginning in July and was told that the same amount will be needed the following two years. The port agencies from the two states are splitting the cost of the studies.

In October 2016, Atkins Global was appointed as environmental consultant to prepare environmental impact statement (EIS) working with USACE.

The environmental study along with the permitting and regulatory process required by the federal government, will cost US$15 million.

In March 2017, a public consultation was held as a part of the study.

Environmental study activities are underway and will take four years for completion. The entire project is expected to be completed by 2028.
