Bunker supplier and trader Bominflot has announced that it has joined with MGI Towing to build and place into service four new tank barges to make bunker deliveries in the Houston/Galveston/Lake Charles corridor, including Houston, Baytown, Barbours Cut, Bayport, Texas City, Galveston, Bolivar Roads, Freeport, Beaumont, Port Arthur, and Lake Charles.


"The barges range from 3500 to 4300 tons capacity and will significantly enhance Bominflot's delivery capabilities, particularly to supply upon short notice, by allowing the staging of loaded barges in strategic locations," Bominflot said in a statement.

One of these barges is dedicated to gasoil deliveries, utilizing a fully segregated system.

The barges are owned jointly by Bominflot and MGI Towing, and are operated by MGI, who has owned and operated bunker barges in the Gulf Coast for more than 30 years.

Bominflot also confirmed that it has leased 350,000 barrels of storage at the Pelican Island Storage Terminal in Galveston.

The six tanks, which have a capacity range of between 25,000 and 100,000 barrels, will allow for full blending of all grades of marine fuels and distillates.
