Liquid Bulk Docks
Port Corpus Christi’s top inbound and outbound commodities include crude oil, fuel oil, gasoline, and diesel among others. Port Corpus Christi operates Foreign Trade Zone #122, which has an activated ship channel for use of the Port’s refinery subzones for overflow storage using barges or vessels.
Port Corpus Christi owns and operates 13 public oil docks with berths ranging from 246 feet (75 meters) to 1,000 feet (304.8 meters), with berth depths up to 47 feet. The largest ship docks are designed to handle 160,000 DWT tankers.
Port industries also operate 16 private oil docks handling a wide variety of petroleum and petrochemical products.
Strategically located near major United States oil and gas production areas, including Eagle Ford Shale and the Permian Basin, Port Corpus Christi is a premier logistics partner and prime gateway for a secure supply of LNG and LPG to the world.
Located on the Texas Gulf Coast, the Port has vast export experience of LPG, frequently loading Very Large Gas Carriers, and will soon be exporting LNG. Cheniere Energy is developing a liquefied natural gas (LNG) export terminal at one of their existing sites in San Patricio County. The $13 Billion liquefaction project is designed for three trains with expected aggregate nominal production capacity of up to 13.5 million tonnes per annum (mtpa). The over 1,000-acre site is located on the deep water La Quinta Ship Channel, approximately 15 nautical miles from the Gulf of Mexico.
Buckeye Texas Partners and Trafigura operate a condensate splitter on the Port’s Inner Harbor, and Oxy Ingleside Energy Center operates an export terminal on the Port’s La Quinta Channel, further enhancing the Port’s capabilities to serve the LNG/LPG export needs.
