Utah Point comprises a berth 272 metres in length, with a harbour depth of 14.5 metres, a ship loader with a peak load rate of 7,500 tonnes per hour, two stockyard product storage facilities and supporting infrastructure, roads and product transport, and reclaiming and conveying equipment. The Utah Point Bulk Handling Facility is one of four berths located in Port Hedland, a town situated 1,600 kilometres north-east of Perth, that are owned by the Pilbara Ports Authority (PPA), a state-owned enterprise.

Prior to the 2017 March WA State Election, the Western Australian Government begun a process to divest Utah Point, with Rothschild and Deloitte appointed as financial advisers. The enabling bill for the 99-year lease passed parliament in November 2016.

However, the newly elected Labor Government committed not to lease the assets, and as such, the transaction will not likely occur under the term of the new Government.
