New Storage Capacity for LBC in Baton Rouge, USA
LBC Tank Terminals has announced plans to expand its operations at its Baton Rouge terminal, located in the Geismar Industrial Complex, on the Mississippi.
This expansion is another step for LBC Group’s long-term global growth program; continuing to build out its USA facilities. Construction in Baton Rouge has already started with permitting of the first tanks and will eventually include 3 million barrels of additional storage capacity, as a response to the growing demand for tank storage in the area.
The site’s rail facilities are also being further enhanced with the building of additional rail unloading spots, steaming spots and increasing rail storage capacity to meet the rise in customer demand as a response to the growth in the movement of heavy crude oil and fuel oil products.
LBC’s investment drive in the Baton Rouge site is extensive, including plans for another 4 carbon steel storage tanks, capable of handling truck, rail and marine movements. Plans are currently being finalized, with the first 2 tanks expected to be operational in April 2013.
