- Kinder Morgan Partners (KMP) says commercial operations are underway at phase one of its 185-acre Battleground Oil Specialty Terminal project on the Houston Ship Channel.
- Twenty of the 51 storage tanks built during phase one construction are being placed into service this month, and the remaining tanks will come online during the next six months; a two-berth ship dock and 12 barge berths also are scheduled to be in service this month.
- The project is a JV of operator KMP and TransMontaigne Partners (TLP), the near-$500M terminal is fully subscribed for a total capacity of 7.1M barrels - including the project's phase two expansion - and can handle ultra low sulfur diesel, residual fuels and other black oil terminal services.
