Magellan Midstream to Build a New $335 Million Marine Terminal in Pasadena

Magellan Midstream Partners, LP, July 15, 2016

Magellan Midstream Partners, L.P. has announced its plans to construct a new high-capacity marine terminal along the Houston Ship Channel in Pasadena, Texas to handle refined petroleum products, including various grades of gasoline and diesel fuel, and renewable fuels. The new terminal will be built on nearly 200 acres of recently-acquired land.

Supported by a long-term customer commitment, Magellan initially plans to build approximately 1 million barrels of refined products and ethanol storage and a new marine dock capable of handling Panamax-sized ships or barges with up to a 40-foot draft. Magellan is also constructing a 36-inch pipeline between the partnership’s existing Galena Park, Texas terminal and this new Pasadena terminal to enhance connectivity and distribution options for both facilities. In addition, Magellan is connecting its existing 18-inch Texas City-to-Pasadena pipeline to the new facility. Magellan is developing opportunities for additional connections to third-party refineries, pipelines and terminals within the Gulf Coast region.

The project is currently estimated to cost approximately $335 million, including the acquisition of land. Subject to receipt of necessary permits and regulatory approval, Magellan expects its new Pasadena terminal to be operational in early 2019.

Demand for refined products export capabilities from the Gulf Coast continues to grow, and Magellan is well-positioned to take advantage of these opportunities due to our extensive pipeline and terminals network,” said Michael Mears, chief executive officer. “We are pleased to expand our marine storage capabilities to meet the strong industry demand for both domestic and international exports while solidifying our strategic position as a key provider of storage and transportation services in the Gulf Coast region.

If warranted by additional demand, the new Pasadena facility could be expanded to include up to 10 million barrels of storage and up to 5 docks, including the potential for Aframax-sized vessels with a draft up to 45 feet.
