Jacintoport Terminal

From Global Energy Monitor

The Jacintoport Terminal is 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 tonnes per annum at the terminal,[1] although this proposal appears to have been shelved, with no recent project information available.[2]
