Located at mile marker 144.1 on the Mississippi River in Mt. Airy, Louisiana in St. John the Baptist Parish, the site has the capacity to construct more than 10 MMbbl of storage of crude oil, refined products, chemicals, and other liquids.

After nearly 14 months of construction, Pin Oak has employed 449 contractors who have worked 942,265.50 hr without a lost time incident. Pin Oak has directly and indirectly hired approximately 600 people from our local community and brought economic income to the area, more than 75% of which are local residents of River Parishes. Pin Oak is dedicated to working with local businesses as well as offering an opportunity to the local community.

Over the year, Pin Oak Terminals has donated food to the local community during holidays and in times of need, contributed to the local theatre program, and contributed through numerous monetary donations to non-profit organizations, schools, and churches.

The terminal is beginning operations with one dock, a two-bay truck rack, and four tanks holding a total capacity of 424,000 bbl of refined products and biofuels. Neighbors can expect construction to continue as the remaining permitted tanks and infrastructure are built. Pin Oak Terminals plans to continue to expand by adding new customers and new opportunities, tanks, and infrastructure.

Pin Oak is pursuing a second dock and new customers every day. Once completed, the terminal will have two light Suezmax / Aframax ship docks and capabilities to handle 14 barges simultaneously. Two class I railroads will serve the terminal and the Terminal can build a full two-unit train loop track. The terminal received Foreign Trade Zone status by US Department of Commerce.
