San Antonio-based Rockport Terminals LLC is remediating and redeveloping a former carbon black plant between Port Aransas and Rockport into a private marine terminal. The facility received its first customer in early November — a barge that came from Port Corpus Christi to be cleaned.​ROCKPORT – A San Antonio businessman is leading a multimillion-dollar project to redevelop an industrial site just south of Rockport.

Oil and gas entrepreneur Clayton Reaser formed Rockport Terminals LLC with four partners to transform the shuttered plant into a brown water shipping center along the intracoastal waterway.

The 230-acre site along Redfish Bay off SH 35 between Aransas Pass and Rockport can be serviced by road, rail, pipeline and barge. 

Reaser and his partners hope to develop the property into a facility that can be used to ship crude oil, refined products, aggregate, cotton, sand, gravel or other bulk commodities.

The site, shut down in 2009, was once home to an industrial plant that burned crude oil to make carbon black—an ingredient for tires and other products.

The land deal, which was two years in the making, came with strict conditions for an environmental clean up.
