Further development in support of the South Texas Eagle Ford Shale continues at Port Corpus Christi. Port Corpus Christi Commissioners unanimously approved a lease agreement with NuStar Energy LP for over five acres of waterfront property at Port Corpus Christi.
Utilizing the newly acquired waterfront property, NuStar Energy LP representatives say they hope to have a dock ready for Suezmax Tanker vessels by the second quarter of 2017. Suezmax vessels are designed to carry approximately 1 million barrels of oil.
NuStar will pay an annual base rent on the property and be subject to a minimum throughput of 29.2 million barrels of liquid bulk cargo per year at the new dock.
Eagle Ford Shale related cargo movements at Port Corpus Christi remain steady.
