GT Logistics Crude Oil Terminal
LJA Engineering designed a Turn-Key Crude Oil Terminal for GT Logistics located on 1,200 acres in Port Arthur, Texas. The project consisted of four 45,000 BBL crude storage tanks with floating roofs, as well as approximately nine miles of new track alignment including a loop track of sufficient length to accommodate unit train handling, six 3,500-foot storage tracks, and two 3,500-foot tracks to be used for the unloading of crude oil from unit trains. The crude by rail operation is capable of transferring 100,000 barrels of oil per day. In addition, the project included a new rail bridge, 18 slot rail car unloading rack, and a new barge dock for loading two 30,000 BBL crude barges simultaneously, and marine vapor control system.
