Flint Hills Resources Plans Ingleside Expansion

INGLESIDE, Texas – As part of its Ingleside terminal expansion, Flint Hills Resources plans to build connections to the recently announced crude pipelines coming from the Permian Basin.

The company will be expanding storage and outbound crude loading capacity at its storage terminal in Ingleside, Texas, to about 380,000 bpd.

In addition to pipeline expansion, the project consists of construction of four new crude storage tanks, 60,000 barrels per hour of loading capability, plus associated pumps and piping. The expected in-service date for the project is October 2019. When the project is completed, Ingleside will have a total crude storage capacity of 3.5-4.0 million barrels.

Currently, the Ingleside terminal uses two docks, including one that supports loading of Suezmax-size vessels. Flint Hills Resources is also evaluating a separate project that would allow it to load very large crude carrier (VLCC) vessels.
