In August 2010, the South Sumatran authorities, BKPM, Adani Group and PT Bukit Asam, signed an agreement for the construction of a 270-km rail line from Tanjung Enim to Tanjung Carat. There will also be a coal terminal at Tanjung Carat with a 50 million metric tonne annual capacity.[1]

In July 2015 PT Pelabuhan Indonesia II (Indonesia Port Corporation II), a state-owned port operator, said it planned to build a coal terminal and a container terminal at Tanjung Carat Port by 2019 with a total annual capacity (coal and container) of 100 to 150 million tonnes. The coal terminal is expected to increase the transport capacity of state-owned coal miner PT Bukit Asam.[2]

In 2017, the South Sumatra provincial administration said it hoped Dubai Port Authority Corporation would not cancel its plan to invest in constructing Tanjung Carat Terminal, which is predicted to cost US$3.3 billion.[3]
