Transportation & Terminaling
Moving and storing products is just as important as processing the products themselves. Ergon subsidiaries coordinate the transportation and terminaling of crude oil and finished products to provide reliability, quality control and added flexibility for third parties and the Ergon companies. These subsidiaries maintain strategically located petroleum storage terminals and a growing fleet of tow-boats, barges, railcars, trucks and trailers. Additionally, Ergon subsidiaries own and lease pipeline and gathering systems to transport, store and distribute crude oil and finished products. These subsidiaries excel in environmental stewardship, safety and security throughout their operations.
Ergon Terminaling, Inc.
Ergon Terminaling and its subsidiaries own and operate strategically located storage terminals and service providers that are critical factors in providing the ability to respond to market conditions and customer needs. The terminals feed raw material to Ergon's refineries, store finished products and meet the special requirements of customers, including major oil companies. Under rigorous quality and safety controls, products are off-loaded, sampled, tested and stored until they are ready for loading into tankers, railcars, trucks and barges, or fed through pipelines. Ergon subsidiaries also build and lease customized storage terminals to tenants' specifications.
Ergon Terminaling continues to expand its capabilities through the acquisition of a storage terminal in Ohio and a common carrier pipeline in Texas.
