Nearby Deepwater Dock Development Facilitates Import & Export Opportunities
Located approximately 1.5 miles from OmniPort and only 8 miles from international water, GTL’s Deepwater Dock is comprised of 30 acres along a U.S. Corps of Engineers-maintained 42’ draft channel along the Sabine Neches Waterway, with 3,844 feet of water frontage. GTL is the only independent 3rd party dock operator in the Port Arthur and Beaumont area able to operate 24 hours a day with no height restrictions. The Deepwater Dock is adjacent to the BNSF and UP mainline and has vehicle access via TxDOT Highway 87. The Deep-water Dock is permitted to handling ocean-going barges, Aframax and Panamax ships, offering attractive importing and exporting opportunities to GT OmniPort occupants.
GTL is in the process of connecting the GT OmniPort facility to the deep water docks with a series of 16 inch pipelines to allow for loading and unloading of crude and finished product.
Deepwater Dock Has 3,845 Feet Of Frontage Along Sabine Neches Waterway
GT’s Deepwater Dock properties are located on the Sabine-Neches waterway and consist of two separate tracts of land comprising 30 total acres. The southern tract is currently permitted by the U.S. Corp of Engineers to be improved with a dock capable of berthing an 900’ x 140’ LOA ship and one 750′ x 106′ LOA ship. The southern tract has over 1,900 feet of frontage improved with an 879 foot bulkhead. GT owns an additional 10 acres with 1,800 feet of frontage. Both sites have rail access to the UP and BNSF mainlines and highway frontage for ease of transport via truck. The Deepwater Dock could facilitate large-scale importing or exporting of a wide slate of petroleum commodities, as well as a number of other additional services and applications.

GTL is developing pipeline connectivity between the main terminal and the deep water docks. The six 16” pipelines will allow for the loading and unloading of crude and finished products.
The Sabine Neches channel has received Congressional Approval to be deepened to 48’. Phase I of this project will include the GTL docks. It is expected to be completed by 2019.
