Port Approves Dredged Material Placement

At a special meeting on November 7, the Port Commission of the Port of Houston Authority approved a 25-year lease agreement with Battleground Oil Specialty Terminal Company LLC (BOSTCO) for approximately 55 acres of Port Authority-owned property adjacent to Peggy Lake and on Barnes Island. The Port Commission also approved issuing a marine construction permit to BOSTCO, as well as an agreement for the placement of about 2.2 million cubic yards of dredged material.

BOSTCO is planning a large-scale liquid bulk terminal on and adjacent to Barnes Island, and requested the proposed lease to allow portions of BOSTCO's docks to be built on Port Authority-owned submerged lands adjacent to the authority's Peggy Lake Dredged Material Placement Area, and storage tanks to be placed on filled submerged lands on Barnes Island.
