Flint Hills Resources Expanding Operations in San Antonio
December 3, 2014
Flint Hills Resources announced today it is increasing its capabilities in San Antonio with the acquisition of a bulk storage facility that will be converted into a fuels terminal. The facility was previously owned by RediFuel.
“Due to the continued growth in San Antonio and Central Texas, Flint Hills Resources is working to keep up with increased market demand for fuel,” said Lance Baker, Texas operations manager for Flint Hills Resources. “We are excited to continue our history of improving our San Antonio terminal system, which we have operated since 1990.”
“This new FHR facility will allow us to bring additional capacity to the San Antonio market to better serve the increasing demands of our customers and support more Texas motorists,” said Nathan Brubaker, Texas marketing general manager for Flint Hills Resources. “FHR values its leadership position in the central corridor of Texas and is proud to further our investment in the San Antonio market.”
The new terminal will add two 40,000 barrel tanks for diesel storage and two truck bays to Flint Hills Resources’ current capabilities. Located at 4800 Corner Parkway, the facility is less than three miles from the company’s existing fuels terminal, which has eight tanks with around 320,000 barrels of storage capacity and four truck bays.
The two San Antonio terminals will be connected via pipeline. The connection between the two facilities should be complete by summer 2015.
