See what we've been up to this week!
August 30, 2019
Everyone knows Texas is a prolific natural gas producer, and in recent years it has also become a major exporter of liquefied natural gas, or LNG, to our trading partners all over the world. Indeed, the U.S. shale revolution, which began in Texas, has transformed the entire nation into an energy powerhouse.
EPIC is in the final stages of building a crude export dock in Corpus Christi that will be capable of loading Suezmax tankers that carry up to 1 million barrels. Company officials expect that dock to be ready for service by the end of the year.
