Houston-based Max Midstream has every intention to transform the Port of Calhoun into a major crude oil export center. With $1 billion worth of plans in motion, Max recently has acquired the Seahawk Pipeline and Terminal from private equity firm Oaktree Capital with a big, bold idea to offer shippers a more economical, less congested alternative to export sites at Houston/Galveston and Corpus Christi. The newly acquired pipeline connects the Kinder Morgan Crude and Condensate Interconnect in Edna, Texas, where Max also operates a crude oil terminal, to the Seahawk Terminal. Following construction of a new pipeline and added interconnects, Seahawk will flow up to 20 million barrels of Permian and Eagle Ford crude each month to a completely revitalized terminal system that includes its Edna site by 2023. Storage will increase to 9 million Bbls at Edna and 6 million Bbls at Seahawk. Max also is investing $360 million to widen and deepen the Port to accommodate Aframax and Suezmax ships. Phase 1 of the project is slated for completion in November.
Max Midstream bridges the gap between upstream and downstream with strategic partnerships in the global refining sector. From the wellhead to Gulf, they deliver consistent quality crude oil quickly and efficiently, saving both time and money. Their high-capacity network of pipelines, storage and terminal facilities offer a seamless, one-stop solution for premium midstream operations.
