The Jacintoport Terminal is a general-purpose terminal situated on a 125-acre tract on the north side of the Houston Ship Channel near Channelview, Texas. It is operated by Jacintoport International, a cargo handling and stevedoring firm headquartered in Houston. It operates Jacintoport Terminal under a long-term lease from the Port Authority of Houston.
Jacintoport International said it planned to build a coal export facility with a capacity of 13.6 million short tons per annum (approximately 12.34 million metric tonnes) at the terminal, although this proposal appears to have been abandoned, with no recent project information available. As of September 2021, neither the Port of Houston website nor the Jacintoport website list coal as a commodity handled at the facility.
