HOUSTON – Enterprise Products Partners’ Sea Port crude oil export terminal off the coast of Texas could begin operations between the second half of 2026 and early 2027, the pipeline operator’s co-CEO said on Thursday.
According to Reuters, Enterprise Co-CEO Jim Teague disclosed the proposed Sea Port Oil Terminal’s start date at the recent RBN Energy export conference in Houston. Previous announcements had said that the Sea Port Oil Terminal (SPOT) would start operations by late 2025.
The proposed SPOT project would be comprised of a fixed-platform port marine terminal located approximately 30 nautical miles off the coast of Freeport, Texas, in approximately 115 feet of water. The platform will be connected to the onshore storage facility by two 36-in., bi-directional pipelines.
