The bulk liquid storage operator also will be adding storage capacity.
LBC Tank Terminals, which operates bulk liquid storage facilities for chemical and oil products, has received approval by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and the Port of Houston to add a marine ship dock and two barge docks in the Gulf Coast of the United States. The approval will allow the company to expand its Bayport Terminal in Seabrook, Texas.
When the new docks are completed LBC will have four ship docks and seven barge docks at its Bayport terminal.
LBC says that in addition to the new marine facilities, it will begin construction of new storage capacity, adding between 3 million to 4 million barrels that will target both the chemical and petroleum industries. Once completed, the additional capacity will increase Bayport’s site to about 10 million barrels. New truck and rail loading facilities are also a key part of these expansion plans.
LBC says its Bayport location is the first stop for all ships tendering through the Houston Gulf.
LBC Tank Terminals, headquartered in Belgium, operates bulk liquid storage facilities in the United States, China, France, Spain and Portugal.
