Occidental ships first crude cargo from Corpus Christi after Harvey

HOUSTON (Reuters) - Oil producer Occidental Petroleum has loaded and shipped its first crude oil cargo from its Western Gulf Coast terminal since operations at the Port of Corpus Christi, Texas, were disrupted by Hurricane Harvey, the company said on Saturday.

The company’s Ingleside Energy Center oil export terminal, with capacity to handle 300,000 barrels per day (bpd), has resumed activities and plans to continue alleviating congestion for crude producers in the U.S Permian basin, where Occidental operates large output facilities.

The first crude cargo, on an Aframax tanker, started loading some 700,000 barrels of U.S crude on Thursday and it set sail on Saturday for an undisclosed international destination, the firm said.
