A gateway to global markets

Moda Midstream is in the midst of a multi-phase expansion project to significantly expand storage capacity at its Moda Ingleside Energy Centre to grow its customer base within the US Gulf Coast.
The Moda Ingleside Energy Centre (MIEC) near Corpus Christi, Texas, is one of the largest crude export terminals in the Gulf Coast region, and work is nearing completion on the construction of an additional 10 million barrels of crude oil storage as well as a further expansion of its docks.
More than half of the storage expansion will be in service by the end of 2019, including several tanks that have already been commissioned and delivered early to its customers.
Earlier in 2019 the company successfully commissioned upgrades to berth 2A that enables the loading of VLCCs at rates of up to 80,000 barrels per hour. Once the entire expansion is complete in the second quarter of 2020, MIEC will have combined vessel loading rates of 160,000 barrels per hour, improved berthing efficiencies and more than 12 million barrels of storage.
