Oct 17, 2005 9:23 AM
Flint Hills Resources, Wichita KS, is adding fuel storage and transportation capacity to meet growing Texas fuel demand. The company has plans for several projects - near Bastrop and in Austin and Waco - to better serve area gasoline, diesel and jet fuel markets.
Flint Hills Resources also is working on plans to add new fuel storage and truck-loading facilities at its Waco site to meet the market demand in the Waco and Temple areas.
The company, which owns a crude oil refining complex in Corpus Christi, pipelines and fuel terminals, is building a new storage and distribution facility in Bastrop County, Texas, to supply jet fuel to Austin-Bergstrom International Airport.
Once the Bastrop facility is operating in 2006, the company plans to use the jet fuel tanks at its east Austin terminal for additional gasoline and diesel storage, and will explore expanding the terminal's truck-loading rack capacity to meet growing demand.
The company will also increase the amount of gasoline and diesel it carries on its pipeline by 30,000 barrels per day to serve the Central Texas markets.
"These projects are the first of several anticipated investments in Texas, all positioned to improve our ability to serve customers in these important markets," said Brad Razook, executive vice president of Flint Hills Resources.
