Marine Ship Dock and New Barge Docks Approved for Construction, LBC Bayport
LBC Tank Terminals has moved another step closer to expanding its Bayport Terminal in Seabrook Texas.
The Port of Houston and the Army Corps of Engineers have completed their review of the permits and have approved the addition of a marine ship dock and two barge docks. On completion of these facilities, the Bayport terminal will have a total of 4 ship docks and 7 barge docks.
In addition to these state of the art marine facilities, LBC will begin construction of new storage capacity, adding in the range of 3 million to 4 million barrels (477 000 to 636 000 m3) targeting both the chemical and petroleum industries. Once completed, the additional capacity will increase the Bayport site to approximately 10 million barrels (1 600 000 m3). New truck and rail loading facilities are also a key part of these expansion plans.
LBC’s terminal in Bayport is conveniently located in the Bayport Industrial Complex in Seabrook, Texas and is the first stop for all ships tendering through Galveston Bay (Houston Gulf).
