The town of Muanda is 8 kilometres (8,000.0 m) north-west of the small port of Banana in the mouth of the Congo, and 6.5 kilometres (6,500.0 m) southeast of Point Kipundji. The Moanda Oil Terminal, consisting of various platforms, pipelines and a permanent tanker, lies 10 miles southwest of Point Kipundji. Some 100 km upstream from Muanda, on the north bank of the Congo River, lies the city of Boma, which serves as DR Congo's major port; the great width and depth of the Congo River allow seagoing vessels to reach Boma despite its distance from the coast.
