The Port of Corpus Christi alongside Martin Midstream Partners held a groundbreak this morning for Oil Dock 15. The new dock will accommodate trans-loading through a new 24” pipeline originating from Martin’s 900,000 barrel POCC crude oil terminal. Oil Dock 15 will be designed to accommodate up to 52 feet of draft and feature an 1,100 foot slip. The dock will be capable of crude loading at a rate of 30,000 barrels per hour. Three loading arms will be constructed to accommodate inland and ocean-going barges and ships including both Aframax and the new Panamax classes. POCCA's groundbreak today featured Oil Dock 15's new site location where Port Commissioner Wes Hoskins introduced several speakers including Mayor of Corpus Christi, Nelda Martinez, State Representstive: Todd Hunter, and Chairman of the Port: Charles Zahn.
