DOT Approves License
For Deepwater Oil Port
A license for Texas Offshore
Port Inc. to construct and operate a deepwater port for oil super- tankers in the Gulf of Mexico has been approved by the federal
Department of Transportation.
The port, to be located 12 miles south of Freeport, Texas, will be able to handle 500,000 barrels of oil a day and will cost an esti- mated $191 million.
Texas Offshore Port Inc., a con- sortium of potential users — oil and chemical companies—applied for the license which guarantees that the facility be operated as a common carrier.
The DOT said that according to conditions recommended by the
Justice Department and the Fed- eral Trade Commission, the port will be subject to antitrust laws.
Transportation Secretary Drew
Lewis, in a statement released recently, said the new port will lower the cost of transporting crude oil and significantly reduce the risk of oil spills.
