Genesis to build new liquids import-export terminal in Baton Rouge

Genesis Energy LP plans to build a new crude oil, intermediates, and refined products import-export terminal in Baton Rouge, La. Genesis will build the Baton Rouge terminal on about 90 acres of land near the Port of Greater Baton Rouge, connected to the port’s existing deepwater docks on the Mississippi River.

The docks can berth vessels ranging from barges to Aframax-class. Genesis will also build an initial 1.1-million bbl of storage for crude oil, intermediates, and refined products, expandable to provide additional terminaling services to customers.

The Baton Rouge terminal will connect to ExxonMobil facilities in the area, as well as to Genesis’ previously announced Scenic Station unit train-capable rail terminal. Genesis expects to complete Scenic Station next quarter (OGJ Online, Feb. 4, 2013). It is connected to both Canadian National Railway and Kansas City Southern Railway, the latter of which interconnects with Canadian Pacific Railway.

Genesis expects the Baton Rouge terminal to be operational by second-quarter 2015, underpinned by definitive agreements with ExxonMobil for a portion of both its storage and throughput capacity. The terminal will cost $150 million.
