Colonial Terminal Logistics (CTL) and Enterprise Products Partners L.P. have joined forces to offer marine logistics services for Colonial Pipeline Shippers from Enterprise’s Beaumont marine terminal facility.
This will allow Colonial Pipeline Shippers to move product from thirteen Gulf Coast refineries to the Beaumont Terminal for loading onto vessels for transportation to the Florida retail market, as well as for export to foreign destinations. CTL can provide customers firm dock capacity rights and will also have access to as much as 2 million barrels of new storage at the Beaumont facility.
CTL’s long term vision is to move products for marine export from multiple terminals in the greater Beaumont/Port Arthur/Orange area. CTL’s marine logistics services, which are cost advantaged to refined product services offered on the Houston Ship Channel, include storage, blending and dock usage solutions.
CTL General Manager, Madeleine (Mat) McLean said: “We are excited to now offer this cost advantaged solution to our customers. With the exploding export growth CTL is well positioned to serve this demand and offer a competitive alternative to Houston Ship Channel customers.”
Executive Vice President, Commercial, for Enterprise’s general partner, Bill Ordemann said: “We are pleased to execute this agreement with CTL, which expands the effective reach and increases volume for our Beaumont refined products marine terminal and storage complex. Our Beaumont facility is part of one of the most extensive marine terminal networks along the Gulf Coast and is uniquely positioned to provide flow assurance and market choices for refined products.”
