Project Overview

Project Purpose:

Eagle Ford Terminals Corpus Christi LLC is developing a crude oil terminal and dock along the Corpus Christi Ship Channel at 5500 Up River Road. Eagle Ford Terminals is committed to designing, constructing and operating the terminal in a safe and reliable manner, and to meeting or exceeding regulatory standards.

Property History

Eagle Ford Terminals is a joint venture between Plains All American Pipeline, L.P. and Enterprise Products Partners L.P. Eagle Ford Terminals owns the land and has assumed the remediation responsibilities associated with the purchase of the property out of bankruptcy

Plains will construct and operate the terminal on behalf of Eagle Ford Terminals

The 72 acre-site was acquired by Eagle Ford Terminals and its subsidiaries out of Chapter 7 bankruptcy from Encycle/Texas, Inc. in March 2014

 

Construction Efforts

Construction is currently underway on a crude oil storage terminal of four storage tanks with capacity for 1.2 million barrels of oil

Construction of a dock along the Corpus Christi Ship Channel that will be able to host ships varying in size from Ocean-going barges to Suezmax class vessels

Piping and other construction at Eagle Ford Terminals is underway and is anticipated to support approximately 200 construction jobs

The facility is scheduled to be in service in 2019

Remediation Efforts

Remediation and site preparation activities began in August 2014, and included the removal of the remaining structures and the existing concrete foundation

Pursuant to the terms of the sale, the environmental remediation of the site was performed under the direction and supervision of the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) and U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)

Our work remediating the former Encycle facility concluded August 2016 and we anticipate receiving a closure letter from the TCEQ in the coming months

Approximately 40 workers were involved in remediation efforts
