Alpharetta, GA and Houston, TX (October 10, 2017) – Colonial Terminal Logistics (CTL) and Enterprise Products Partners L.P. (NYSE: EPD) today announced that CTL is now offering marine logistics services for Colonial Pipeline Shippers at Enterprise’s Beaumont marine terminal facility. This will allow Colonial Pipeline Shippers to move product from thirteen Gulf Coast refineries to the Beaumont Terminal for loading onto vessels for transportation to the Florida retail market, as well as for export to foreign destinations. CTL can provide customers firm dock capacity rights and will also have access to as much as 2 million barrels of new storage at the Beaumont facility.

CTL’s long term vision is to move products for marine export from multiple terminals in the greater Beaumont/Port Arthur/Orange area. CTL’s marine logistics services, which are cost advantaged to refined product services offered on the Houston Ship Channel, include storage, blending and dock usage solutions.

Madeleine (Mat) McLean, General Manager, CTL noted, “We are excited to now offer this cost advantaged solution to our customers. With the exploding export growth CTL is well positioned to serve this demand and offer a competitive alternative to Houston Ship Channel customers.” Customers interested in learning more should contact Mat McLean (mmclean@colterm.com or 678-762-2314).

Bill Ordemann, Executive Vice President, Commercial, for Enterprise’s general partner said, “We are pleased to execute this agreement with CTL, which expands the effective reach and increases volume for our Beaumont refined products marine terminal and storage complex. Our Beaumont facility is part of one of the most extensive marine terminal networks along the Gulf Coast and is uniquely positioned to provide flow assurance and market choices for refined products.”

CTL, a subsidiary of the Colonial Pipeline Company, was formed in early 2017. CTL currently offers marine logistics services in Beaumont Texas with plans to offer marine logistics solutions throughout the Greater Beaumont/Port Arthur area.
