Petrochemical Purchasing & Sales
Our petrochemical operations consist of over 150,000 barrels of storage and blending capabilities with the ability to ship and receive materials by barge, railcar, ISO container, and truck. All products are handled in a safe and responsible manner and our on-site laboratories allow us to test and qualify materials before they are blended, reassuring our customers and suppliers.
Our unique fuel oil blending services give us a strategic advantage over our competitors when helping our customers with difficult-to-manage products and co-products. Issues such as pour point, water, ash, flash, solids, sulfur, handling difficulties, and a myriad of other challenges are no problem for us. Furthermore, we can offer permanent homes for problematic streams at competitive values.
Additionally, we can assist our customers in placing product streams into specialty or secondary chemical markets.
Fuel Oil Blending
We blend a broad range of refinery and petrochemical products from various markets in our fuel oil blending program. The majority of our blended products will have an end use for power generation in the industrial sector. Although we have multiple blending locations, Magellan Terminal in Galena Park is our primary deep draft facility. Located in the Port of Houston on the Ship Channel, our facility can provide vessel, barge, truck, and rail access to handle products. We have the capacity to load between 10,000- to 40,0000-barrel parcels via barge and deep draft vessel.
