Jacintoport Terminal

From Global Energy Monitor

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,[1] although this proposal appears to have been abandoned, with no recent project information available.[2] As of September 2021, neither the Port of Houston website[3] nor the Jacintoport website[4] list coal as a commodity handled at the facility.
