Buckeye Partners loads first vessel at new Ingleside export terminal
16 Jul 2020
Houston pipeline operator Buckeye Partners has started operations at its new crude oil export terminal in Ingleside.
With some parts of the facility still under construction, Buckeye's South Texas Gateway has been receiving pipeline shipments of crude oil from the Permian Basin of West Texas since June.
A Malta-flagged oil tanker arrived Tuesday and is loading the terminal's first export shipment. The Aframax-class tanker can hold roughly 750,000 barrels of crude.
