Blue Dolphin Purchases Option to Acquire Ingleside Refinery

40,000 barrels per day of refining capacity could be added if the site is re-commissioned

Blue Dolphin Energy has purchased a 180 day optionĀ  to acquire an idled refinery in Ingleside, TX. Lazarus Texas Refinery owns the idled facility.

The refinery was built in the late 70s and had capacity of 40,000 b/d. The facility sits on 100 acres of land and has a barge dock that provides direct access to Gulf Coast waterways. 210,000 barrels of storage is currently leased and 475,000 barrels of storage tanks are being refurbished.

Blue Dolphin owns a refinery in Wilson County. The Nixon Facility is running 10,000 b/d of Eagle Ford crude. A re-commissioning of the Ingleside facility will require complete inspection and refurbishment where needed. The various storage, terminal, pipeline, barge, and processing portions of the plant could be re-started and operated independently of each other.
