In December 2018 Enbridge, Kinder Morgan, and Oiltanking GmbH announced plans to build an $800 million oil export terminal offshore Freeport, Texas, and make it operational by late 2021 or early 2022.[2] A permit application for the project was submitted to the Maritime Administration on Feb. 4, 2019, and is listed under Docket ID: MARAD-2019-0012.[3] In March 2019 Kinder Morgan withdrew from the project and its share was purchased by Enbridge.[1] In January 2020 Enbridge announced that it was withdrawing its application for COLT and would instead be focusing on its Sea Port Oil Terminal proposal.[4]
