Westway Group expanding Houston terminal locations
Nov 16, 2011 1:40 PM
Westway Group Inc announced that its subsidiary, Westway Terminal Company LLC, is in the process of further expanding both of its Houston TX bulk liquid storage terminals—Houston 1 and Houston 2.
At the Houston 1 facility, Westway will construct six new one-million-gallon tanks, three new dock lines, as well as the associated inbound and outbound marine and land traffic infrastructure. This project is Phase 7 of the Houston 1 expansion program which will maximize utilization of Westway’s land bank and improve the economic efficiencies of this site. The Houston 1 facility has been at or near 100% utilization, with demand for storage exceeding the phased expansion program that the company has undertaken.
Concurrently with the work at Houston 1, Westway will construct four new 630,000-gallon tanks at the Houston 2 facility-- which will be Phase 6 in this expansion program. The Houston 2 facility is near 100% utilization, as the demand for non-fuel product storage continues to be strong in this market.
Concurrent construction management at the Houston 1 and Houston 2 facilities will expedite our time-to-market. Upon completion of these expansions at Houston 1 and Houston 2, Westway will have achieved capacity in this important geographic storage hub totaling approximately 113 million gallons.
