With a ceremonial turning of the dirt a new project has broken ground at Port Corpus Christi. The commencement of construction on the new Oil Dock 15 is made possible through a Martin Midstream and Port Corpus Christi partnership.
The big ship ready dock will feature an 1,100 foot slip, 52 foot depth, and load at a rate of 30,000 barrels per hour. Oil Dock 15 will accommodate big ships for exporting large volumes of oil from Corpus Christi.
Marking the momentous occasion, the groundbreaking ceremony was well attended by Martin Midstream representatives, regional professionals and community members, many regional delegates, and Port Corpus Christi Commissioners and staff.
