Overview

ENERGY IN MOTION

Jefferson Energy Terminal was founded in 2012 to meet the needs of the Gulf Coast Refining market. The vision was to connect the abundant North American crude production to the U.S. Gulf Coast and beyond. The terminal became operational in the Fall of 2013. The heat assist heavy crude system was added in January of 2014. Current projects expected to complete in 3Q 2017 will expand the terminal’s service to ethanol and heavy refinery feedstocks. Future projects include rail loading of refined products for export to Mexico and domestic distribution. The terminal provides customers with the following capabilities:

  • Multi-modal facility connecting rail, marine, truck, and pipeline. Loading and unloading capability including: ethanol, fuels, and crude oil from the heaviest Canadian bitumen to the lightest condensate.
  • Directly served by three Class 1 Railroads (UP, BNSF, KCS), with power sharing agreements with CP and CN.
  • Over 2,100,000 barrels of shell storage capacity in service or under construction with full buildout potential of 18 million barrels.
  • Highway off-ramp under construction which will connect truck traffic from Interstate 10 directly to the terminal – 3Q 2017.

REFINING PROXIMITY

Located in the center of the 9.1 million barrel per day Gulf Coast refinery market, the terminal is accessible by rail, interstate highway, and marine modes.

The Beaumont / Port Arthur area is home to multiple major refineries with a total operating capacity of 1.5 million barrels per day.

The terminal sits on a 250-acre site on the east bank of the Neches River Ship Channel at the Port of Beaumont – the fourth largest port by cargo volume in the United States.

Aframax capable ship dock and an inland barge dock links Jefferson Energy Terminal to domestic and foreign marine destinations.

The Neches River at the Port of Beaumont is maintained at a depth of 40 feet with expansion plans to a depth of 48 feet.
