Howard Energy Partners (HEP) announced last week that it has completed expansions of its bulk terminal facilities in Port Arthur and Corpus Christi, Texas.

The projects were designed to increase HEP's Gulf Coast terminal storage capacity to 2.6 million barrels with three ship docks, three barge docks, unit train loading capacity for up to two trains per day and direct pipeline connections through wholly owned pipelines, company officials said in a press release.

BNSF Railway Co. and Union Pacific Railroad serve the Port Arthur facility, while BNSF, UP and Kansas City Southern serve the Corpus Christi location.

“The substantial expansions at our Port Arthur and Corpus Christi facilities signify HEP’s commitment to designing and constructing fully-engineered facilities that are tailored to meet the exact needs of our customers,” said President Brad Bynam. "We currently have more than 470 acres for additional Gulf Coast expansion projects, including significant water frontage."
