JupiterMLP LLC has secured the necessary permits to expand its operations at the port toward creation of the Jupiter Export Terminal.

The terminal will allow the company to load/unload vessels up to 65,000 deadweight tons at a rate of up to 30,000 barrels per hour.

Jupiter also received approval to build up to 2.5 million barrels of storage for hydrocarbons, and has permission to blend refined petroleum products such as diesel and gasoline.

The company expects the export terminal to be fully-​​​operational in 2020.
