Our Terminal segment consists of 1.7 million barrels of above-ground storage capacity across three marine-terminal sites located in Westwego, Louisiana; Brunswick, Georgia; and Harvey, Louisiana.
The facilities are equipped to store a range of petroleum, chemical, and agricultural products. Terminal operations are managed by Blackwater Midstream (“Blackwater”), a wholly-owned subsidiary of GIS Midstream.
Operating safely and bringing the highest level of stewardship to the customer’s products are the cornerstones of Blackwater’s business philosophy. For the last six years, Blackwater’s terminals have not incurred any lost-time injuries. This track record is evidence of the management, training, and systems in place to ensure safe work environments. In 2014, Blackwater received the Independent Liquid Terminals Association’s prestigious 2014 Platinum Safety Award.
The Harvey Terminal site consists of approximately 535,000 barrels of storage capacity ranging in size from 950 to 50,000 barrels. The terminal is outfitted to serve a wide variety of petroleum and chemical products, and it is located on 56 acres on the west bank of the Mississippi River at mile marker 98.1 in the Port of New Orleans. Harvey is a full-service storage site, providing rail, truck, barge, and deep-water service. When fully developed, it will have the potential to provide more than 2 million barrels of storage capacity.
