CORPUS CHRISTI - NuStar Energy LP has completed a private marine loading dock at its North Beach Terminal at the Port of Corpus Christi, which triples marine loading capacity to 400,000 barrels of crude oil per day.

With this new dock, NuStar now has three loading docks in the Port of Corpus Christi, and can load crude oil onto ships simultaneously on all three docks. NuStar also completed major additions and upgrades to the terminal’s pump systems.

“This additional capacity enables us to handle all of the new volumes associated with our ongoing expansion efforts in our South Texas crude oil pipeline system, as well as additional volumes shipped on our pipeline systems to Corpus Christi,” said NuStar President and CEO Brad Barron.

The dock system is designed to load Panamax-class vessels (which carry between 350,000 and 500,000 barrels) at rates up to 30,000 barrels per hour.

The new dock project includes a series of 30-inch and 12-inch pipelines that move the crude oil from incoming pipelines or tanks within the terminal to the new dock, a state-of-the-art metering system, vapor control system and a dock structure with three loading arms.
