Moving and storing products is just as important to Ergon’s operations as processing the products themselves. Handling transportation and terminaling of crude and finished products provides cost savings, reliability, quality control and added flexibility. Ergon subsidiaries maintain strategically located petroleum storage terminals and a growing fleet of towboats, barges, railcars, trucks and trailers. In addition, Ergon owns and leases pipeline and gathering systems to transport, store and distribute crude oil and finished products. These subsidiaries consistently 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 Ergon’s 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. Ergon subsidiaries also build and lease customized storage terminals to tenants’ specifications. Under rigorous quality and safety controls, products are off-loaded, sampled, tested and stored until they are ready for loading into tankers, railcars, trucks, barges or fed through pipelines. Ergon’s terminals participate with the company’s Systems & Performance Improvement Department to comply with ISO 9000 standards.
