Houston-based infrastructure specialist Buckeye Partners has confirmed that crude oil export operations have commenced at the second deepwater dock at South Texas Gateway (STG), a new terminal constructed at the mouth of the Corpus Christi Ship Channel in Ingleside, Texas.

The completion of this dock enables Buckeye to accommodate the berthing and loading of two vessels simultaneously, further facilitating the supply of North American crude oil to global markets.

STG’s marine facilities are now fully operational, with the final construction phase of storage facilities to be completed in the first quarter of 2021.
