American Commercial Lines Inc. has announced that it has entered into a long-term industrial development lease agreement with Houston-based O'Rourke Marine Services LP.

Under the lease agreement, O'Rourke will provide full-service towboat fueling and lubricant services to the inland marine industry from ACL's property in Channelview, Texas.

The agreement provides O'Rourke with a strategic operating location in the Houston ship channel. In addition to fueling and lubricant services, O'Rourke will collect used oil and bilge discharge at their new facility.

"This partnership is a win for both ACL and O'Rourke," Dan Jaworski, General Sales Manager of Liquids for ACL said.

"Having O'Rourke as a tenant at our Channelview facility will enable us to more efficiently fuel our towboats, and, as part of the agreement, O'Rourke will utilize ACL's towing and barge services as the need arises."

American Commercial Lines Inc., headquartered in Jeffersonville, Indiana, is an integrated marine transportation and service company operating in the United States Jones Act trades, with approximately $1.2 billion in revenues and approximately 3,400 employees as of December 31st 2008.

O'Rourke Marine Services is a business division of O'Rourke Petroleum. The company supplies offshore vessels with fuel and lubricants, offering comprehensive marine services to the Gulf of Mexico.

Ports covered by O'Rourke include: Houston, Galveston, Bayport, Baytown, Bolivar Roads, Deer Park, Freeport, Texas City, Port Bolivar and Port Arthur.
