Bluewing Midstream has started construction of the second phase of its expansion project at its bulk liquid storage terminal in the Port of Brownsville, Texas.
The bulk liquids terminal & logistics operator says the expansion will support growing customer demand. This expansion phase will add 300,000 barrels of new liquids storage capacity capable of handling gasoline, diesel, jet fuel and other petroleum products.
Phase II, when combined with Bluewing's existing assets in the Port of Brownsville, will offer existing and potential customers with 1.1 million barrels of storage capacity serving South Texas and exports to Mexico and other international markets.
Phase II is expected to commence initial operations in late 2019.
Bluewing CEO Todd Reid says: 'We are very excited to break ground on our Phase II expansion project and continue to build upon our existing operations.
'Phase II will allow us to advance our strategic organic development vision while continuing to provide flexible and efficient terminal and logistics solutions to our customers.'
