Targa experiencing loading delays at Galena Park LPG terminal: sources

Houston (Platts)--5 Dec 2017 547 am EST/1047 GMT


Targa Resources' Galena Park, Texas, LPG export terminal was experiencing loading delays Monday, sources said.

Sources pointed to a combination of fog and mechanical issues for a seven- to eight-day delay.

Two sources said the 217,000 b/d terminal was having a mechanical issue with a loading arm that is is expected to be fixed in about a week.

Two of three jetties at the Targa terminal were empty, while the Crystal River and Clipper Star were waiting outside of the Houston Ship Channel Monday afternoon, according to Platts trade flow software cFlow.

Three Targa representatives contacted about the delay did not respond to requests for comment Monday.

Market players did not report similar delays at the Enterprise Products Partners terminal nearby and an Enterprise spokesman confirmed it had no delays at the terminal.

The last ship to have left the Targa terminal appears to be the Clipper Sirius, which set sail last week, according to cFlow data.

The Houston Ship Channel was closed to all traffic on Sunday due to fog and reopened Monday morning. Inbound and outbound traffic has been affected by fog on and off for the past week.
