Kinder Morgan is working with Neste, a leading provider of renewable diesel and sustainable aviation fuel, to modify 30 existing tanks and piping at its Harvey Terminal in Harvey, Louisiana to enable segregated storage for a variety of raw materials in the United States. The feedstock stored at this facility will advance development of renewable diesel fuel, sustainable aviation fuel and renewable plastics. Out of a total storage capacity of 3,000,000 barrels at Kinder Morgan’s Harvey Terminal, the project will convert 657,000 barrels in two phases to support the renewable feedstock hub.
As of May 2023, Phase 1 has converted 565,000 barrels of storage capacity and is currently being commissioned. Phase 2 is underway and will convert the remaining 92,000 barrels of storage capacity at the facility. As part of the project, rail, truck and marine infrastructure enhancements have also been made to allow movement of renewable feedstocks inbound and outbound via vessels, barges, rail cars and trucks.
This project further demonstrates Kinder Morgan’s commitment to offer lower carbon solutions to the country’s fast growing renewable fuels industry.
