Port Arthur Terminal

HEP owns the majority interest in the Port Arthur Terminal, strategically located on 462 acres of land on Taylor Basin and Taylor Bayou in Port Arthur, 13 miles from the Gulf of Mexico via the Sabine Neches Waterway with Inland barges access to the terminal via the intercoastal Waterway. The terminal has a current storage capacity of 228,000 barrels with an additional 1.1 million barrels of capacity under construction. We have sufficient land to enable the construction of up to 22.5 million barrels of future capacity.

The terminal was engineered and is being constructed to efficiently handle a variety of bulk liquids including refined motor fuels, crude oil, and condensate.  The facilities have been designed to meet customer-driven performance standards, where we provide not only storage but solutions for specific requirements.
