Kinder Morgan to expand terminals network

By OGJ editors
HOUSTON, Jan. 19 -- Kinder Morgan Energy Partners LP (KMP), Houston, is planning a $57 million expansion of its Perth Amboy, NJ, terminal on Arthur Kill, 25 miles south of New York City.

KPM will build nine liquids storage tanks, adding a combined capacity of 1.4 million bbl for gasoline, diesel, and jet fuel to the 100 existing tanks at the site. It currently has a capacity of 2.25 million bbl of petroleum products and chemicals. The new tanks are expected to be in service during first-quarter 2007.

KMP purchased the Perth Amboy terminal in 2001 from Stolt-Nielson Transportation Group Inc. (OGJ Online, Oct. 17, 2001).

In another move toward expansion in the northeastern US, KMP recently bought from Allied Terminals the 154-acre storage facility adjacent to its dry-bulk Shipyard River terminal in Charleston, SC. The purchased site contains 16 tanks with a total capacity of 1.2 million bbl of petroleum products and chemicals and offers dock services for barges and vessels.

The expansions reflect strong demand for oil products in the Northeast, much of it imported fuel arriving via New York Harbor, KMP said.
