Posted by fidest press agency su sabato, 23 gennaio 2016

Port Corpus ChristiCorpus Christi, TX, USA – M&G Chemicals plans to increase the capacity of its Corpus Christi, Texas facility by over 100,000 Metric Tons per year of integrated PET, reaching the total amount of at least 1.1 million Metric Tons of PET. Annual PTA capacity will also be increased by the corresponding amount. The original capacity announced for the facility located on the Inner Harbor at Port Corpus Christi was 1 Million Metric Tons of PET and 1.2 Million Metric Tons of PTA.“We strongly believe in our Corpus Christi project, which is the most advanced ever in this industry. We decided to increase our investment in order to make it even more efficient. Most of the increased capacity has already been committed in the market. A portion of the capacity will also be used to displace our current imports from Mexico,” said Marco Ghisolfi, M&G Chemicals CEO.This is not the first time that an M&G Chemicals facility exceeds its planned capacity. It already happened in Altamira, Mexico and Suape, Brazil, where the current capacity increased well in excess of 30% versus the initial design capacity.“Our proprietary technology – added Ghisolfi – is very reliable and powerful, and it allows us to reach unprecedented targets”.The facility is currently under construction along the Corpus Christi Ship Channel and the opening is scheduled for the second half of 2016. The PET part of the facility is on schedule while a couple of suppliers of critical equipment to PTA are indicating some delays, which are currently being analyzed and consequences assessed. M&G is working on back-up plans to ensure no impact on PET start-up.
“M&G is constructing the largest and most advanced facility of its kind along the Inner Harbor at Port Corpus Christi. This project sets the benchmark example for efficiency and innovation. It is exciting to see the construction and we look forward to the opening of the M&G Corpus Christi facility,” said John LaRue, Port Corpus Christi Executive Director. With investment in major rail infrastructure improvements to support the M&G facility and direct service by three Class I railroad companies; Port Corpus Christi is well positioned to positively benefit from the construction of this industry leading PET and PTA manufacturing facility. The Corpus Christi region will see an increase in economic activity translating into more jobs.
M&G Chemicals is among the three largest producers of PET resin for packaging applications in the world, and the second largest in the Americas, in terms of nominal capacity with 1,600 kMT/year, with nearly 1.4 MMtons/year of installed capacity. The Company employs more than 900 employees in 14 locations in six countries around the world. In 2015 M&G Chemicals posted an annual revenue of $ 2.0 billion.M&G Chemicals has manufacturing locations in Brazil, Mexico and the USA. Its plants in Suape, Brazil and Altamira, Mexico are the two largest single lines and most efficient in the world (measured in terms of operating costs per metric ton), and are based on proprietary technology. Through its engineering division Chemtex, M&G Chemicals provides technological development, research and engineering services for the construction of plants for customers in the polyester chain (including PET, polyester fibre and PTA production) and LNG industries.

First U.S. Crude Oil Export in 40 Years Sails from Corpus Christi

Posted by fidest press agency su sabato, 2 gennaio 2016

Port Corpus ChristiCorpus Christi, TX, USA – Following the United States government’s repeal of a 40 year ban on the export of U.S. crude oil, NuStar Energy and ConocoPhillips have loaded the nation’s first export cargo at Port Corpus Christi. The light crude oil sold to the international trading company Vitol, has set sail from Port Corpus Christi. Major investments in terminal operations at Port Corpus Christi in recent years have primed the South Texas port for a position as a leading exporter of U.S. crude oil. Deep water, dock space, and abundant storage along with plans for further channel deepening will accommodate some of the world’s largest tankers for efficient movement of crude and condensate from Port Corpus Christi. Port Corpus Christi is connected via intricate pipeline systems to the South Texas Eagle Ford Shale and to the Permian Basin. “Infrastructure improvements at Port Corpus Christi have placed our port in a unique position as a critical component in the export of U.S. crude and condensate. Port Corpus Christi’s deep draft ship channel and strategic location to some of the largest production areas in the US provides a secure and competitive supply chain to markets worldwide. Future capital improvements including deepening the ship channel will accommodate larger vessels that are required to cost effectively supply US crude oil to global markets,” said John LaRue, Port Corpus Christi Executive Director.NuStar has invested heavily in recent years to expand its South Texas Crude Oil Pipeline System and in Corpus Christi Terminal operations. “Based on our investments in Corpus Christi and our South Texas pipeline system, NuStar was well-positioned, equipped and staffed to immediately begin loading cargoes for export,” said NuStar President and CEO Brad Barron. “And we plan on further expanding our Corpus Christi operations to provide more options to our customers to move Eagle Ford Shale crude oil, whether it is being moved domestically or internationally. In fact, we are currently in the process of developing a second private dock in the Port of Corpus Christi.”(photo: Port Corpus Christi)

“Port Corpus Christi’s Strategic Location and Deep Ship Channel is Favored for Large Crude Oil Tankers”

Posted by fidest press agency su domenica, 20 dicembre 2015

corpus christie2Corpus Christi, TX, USA – U.S. Congressional leaders reached an agreement to lift a 40-year-old ban on crude oil exports on Friday, December 18, 2015. The Senate voted overwhelming in favor, sending the legislation to President Obama for his signature. The House voted to pass the legislation in separate action earlier Friday.The agreement would end the U.S. crude oil export ban, enacted in the 1970s in response to an export embargo to the United States enforced by Arab members of the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries. With U.S. oil production now rivaling that of Saudi Arabia, supporters of lifting the ban said U.S. policy should be updated to reflect the new energy landscape.”For the last several years, the Port of Corpus Christi has been investing in water and land side infrastructure to support exporting crude when the ban was lifted. Considering our proximity to Mexico and with both Permian and Eagle Ford Shale oil coming into the port, the Port of Corpus Christi is well positioned to serve our customers who plan to export oil and to supply their foreign markets,” said Judy Hawley, Port Corpus Christi Chair. With infrastructure capabilities to handle liquid bulk, deep water shipping channels, and a strategic corpus christie1location within U.S. oil producing regions; Port Corpus Christi is positioned to positively benefit from the repeal of the crude oil export ban. The United States, South Texas, and the Coastal Bend region will see an increase of domestic energy production translating into more energy related jobs, improvement to the U.S. balance of trade, energy security, lower gasoline prices, and the strengthening of America’s geopolitical standing around the world.“Lifting the crude oil export ban will boost the American economy, fostering job creation and lowering energy costs at home. Doing away with this antiquated policy gives the United States an opportunity to promote stronger relationships with our allies around the world, who can now diversify their energy supply and enhance their national security,” said U.S. Senator John Cornyn.Ruben Martin III, President and Chief Executive Officer of Martin Midstream Partners commented, “The Port of Corpus Christi is poised to become a world class crude oil export facility and Martin, through its existing Corpus Christi multimodal crude terminal and ongoing expansion of these facilities, is well positioned to service the needs of the largest crude oil vessels calling on the Port today as well as those which will call on the Port after the deepening of the channel.”This action corpus christietaken by the U.S. Congress will unleash the full potential of America’s energy boom, creating new jobs by the hundreds of thousands across the region and the United States. It will increase investments in the region generating a greater economic growth impacting regional and U.S. economies, workers, and consumers. Federal, state, and local taxes from expanding crude oil exports could reach $14.5 Billion in 2020. Technology advances in drilling will set the United States to surpass both Russia and Saudi Arabia as the largest global producer of crude oil. It will increase America’s energy security by continued investment in – and development of – resources here at home allowing a greater U.S. diplomatic leverage worldwide.
Omar Garcia, President & CEO, STEER said, “Lifting the ban on oil exports will continue to directly impact the Eagle Ford Shale region by ensuring this growth is both long-term and sustainable. South Texas and the Corpus Christi region has greatly benefitted from the oil and gas industry, according to the most recent data available the economic impact was nearly $87 billion.” Garcia added, “Countless studies over the past few years have shown the benefits of opening oil exports. One such study by Rice University’s Center of Energy Studies shows that the Eagle Ford stands to benefit the most from the approval to export oil due to decreased transportation costs and type of production. “Free trade of transportation fuels is already allowed in the United States. In 2013, the U.S. exported $150 billion of petroleum products. The lifting of crude oil exports will help narrow the trade deficit by $22.3 billion in 2020. “A lifting of the crude oil export ban would certainly be good for the Port of Corpus Christi,” said NuStar President and CEO Brad Barron. “NuStar’s North Beach Terminal is the end point for our South Texas crude oil pipeline and storage system that brings crude from the Eagle Ford Shale play to the port, and we could immediately begin loading the large export cargoes of crude from our existing dock space at the port.”

On January 13, 2015, we received two responses to the Notice to Bidders. Texas Descon, LLC, a Texas based firm representing the Port of Santa Marta in Colombia, submitted the highest and best bid in the amount of $410,000. The Port of Santa Marta intends to disassemble the facility, ship the components to Colombia, and re-assemble the building and equipment to support operations at their location. In addition to their bid, Texas Descon submitted an executed Bill of Sale.”We have a sister port relationship with our friends from Port Santa Marta. We have to give up the cold storage facility to support the new path of the New Harbor Bridge but Port Commissioners and staff are glad to know that the refrigerated warehouse will have a great home at Port Santa Marta,” said Judy Hawley, Chair Port Commission.Mauricio Suárez Ramírez, CEO of the port of Santa Marta commented, “This news is historic for the our country’s international trade and infrastructure. Colombia handles large flows of refrigerated cargo, but it did not have a port with refrigerated warehouses for such purpose, therefore we are betting on commercial products strengthening both imports and exports offering more efficient services, with competitive prices.” Port Santa Marta’s CEO continues; “In honor of a sister port agreement with our friends of the Port of Corpus Christi and we will tribute it with our commitment to baptize the cold storage with this name.
