The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has issued a final greenhouse gas construction permit to CCI Corpus Christi LLC for a 100,000 b/d condensate splitter and bulk petroleum terminal near Corpus Christi, TX. The terminal is to include storage tanks and barge loading operations that can handle 500,000 b/d of crude condensate for export. In addition to exporting product, the company also plans to use the crude condensate to produce diesel, jet fuel, naphtha and other petroleum products. CCS is a unit of Stamford, CT-based Castleton Commodities International LLC, which was formerly known as Louis Dreyfus Highbridge Energy. Earlier this year, the Obama administration confirmed that export of condensate was permissible under existing law (see Shale Daily, June 25).
