​​​​CORPUS CHRISTI - Though the Port of Corpus Christi (PCC) has been striving to achieve diversification in the commodities shipped out of the port, it continues to remain, essentially, an energy port.

The deep-water port, the fifth largest in the United States, in tonnage terms, ironed out a strategic plan two years ago and, like most ports, has always tried to identify new business opportunities in its quest for diversification.​​​​

Despite its heavy dependence on energy shipments, PCC does not rely only on oil.

PCC is the largest wind energy import/export port in the United States. Natural gas is also a big import/export because it is so available in the region.

The port is allocating considerable capital resources for modernization and expansion of docks, rail and infrastructure.​​
