Nederland Terminal

The Sunoco Logistics Nederland Terminal, located on the Sabine-Neches waterway between Beaumont and Port Arthur, Texas, is a large marine terminal that provides storage and distribution services for refiners and other large transporters of crude oil. The terminal receives, stores, and distributes crude oil, feedstocks, lubricants, petrochemicals, and bunker oils (used for fueling ships and other marine vessels) and also blends lubricants. The terminal currently has a total storage capacity of approximately 22 million barrels with individual tank capacities of up to 660,000 barrels.
The Nederland Terminal can receive crude oil and other products at each of its five ship docks and three barge berths. The five ship docks are capable of receiving over 2 million barrels per day of crude oil. The terminal can also receive crude oil through our Crude Oil Pipelines or a number of other party pipelines including:
  • the Shell Houma to Houston pipeline from Louisiana
  • the Cameron Highway pipeline
  • the ExxonMobil Pegasus pipeline
  • the United States Department of Energy (“DOE”) Big Hill pipeline
  • the DOE West Hackberry pipeline
The Nederland Terminal can deliver crude oil and other petroleum products via pipeline, barge, ship, rail, or truck. In total, the terminal is capable of delivering over 2 million barrels per day of crude oil to our Crude Oil Pipelines or a number of third party pipelines including:
  • the ExxonMobil pipeline to its Beaumont,Texas refinery
  • the DOE pipelines to the Big Hill and West Hackberry Strategic Petroleum Reserve caverns
  • the Valero pipeline to its Port Arthur, Texas refinery
  • the Total pipelines to its Port Arthur, Texas refinery
  • the Shell pipeline to various Houston, Texas refineries
We are continually upgrading the terminal’s infrastructure and operational flexibility to meet market needs, including the blending of crude oil grades to meet individual refiner specifications.
