Calhoun Port Authority, Max Midstream Announce Carbon Neutral Port Expansion Plans

The Calhoun Port Authority announced that the Congressionally authorized Matagorda Ship Channel expansion will be constructed using an Environmental Social Governance (ESG) program with the intentions of making this project carbon neutral. 

The port expansion will enable a wide array of products to be shipped from the Port of Calhoun, creating much needed local jobs and economic growth. Max Midstream, a Houston-based energy company, is supporting the expansion of the port and is adopting and implementing a comprehensive ESG program to support these initiatives. 

“The Matagorda Ship Channel expansion is essential if we are going to grow our regional economy as it will allow us to export and import a significant number of goods and products that reach well beyond the traditional energy logistics that we do today,” said Port Director Charles Hausmann. 

The announcement ensures the port will have an expanded product offering, including fertilizer and construction material, and be constructed and operated in an environmentally friendly and conscious way, he said.

“We don’t have to choose between economic prosperity and environmental protection,” Hausmann said. “We can and should do both.  And at the Calhoun Port Authority, that’s exactly what we are doing.”

Details on the port’s ESG program will be released later this Fall.  For more information on the Calhoun Port Authority and this project, click here.
