HOUSTON,TX.  May 28, 2024 – Jindal Tubular USA, LLC has contracted Jones Power and Rockport Terminals to provide the port and pipe logistics services for a grassroot, world-scale natural gas pipeline project destined for south Texas.

Jones Power and Rockport Terminals are Jones Capital energy infrastructure companies, providing integrated logistics services for this project, which is designed to transport up to 4.5 billion cubic feet per day of natural gas from the Agua Dulce supply area to the LNG export terminal in Brownsville, Texas. The project consists of approximately 137 miles of new 48-inch- and 42-inch-diameter pipelines from a new compressor station in Kleberg County to the export facility.

The pipe, to be manufactured by Jindal in their Bay St. Louis, Mississippi mill, will be barged to Rockport Terminals on the Texas gulf coast, and then transported to site by Jones Power. Fabrication is expected to begin in summer of 2024 and be transported in time for first operations scheduled for autumn of 2024.

“This is an exciting project for Jindal, being our first major 48” USA pipeline project, which is a market that has become very important to us as the USA grows their LNG export capabilities,” said Jindal Tubular President Vikas Chandra. “The integrated solution provided by Jones Power and Rockport Terminals is a great fit for this project, and we’re thrilled to have them as our port services and pipeline logistics partner.”

“We’re honored to be providing specialty logistics services for Jindal”, said Jones Power CEO John Clark. “These large diameter pipeline projects are critical to expanding America’s LNG export capabilities, and we are proud to play a role helping the world ensure energy reliability, affordability, and sustainability. Very few 48” projects have been built in the past decade, and Jones Power is the only company with the proven capabilities to manage the unique challenges presented by these large, heavy pipe endeavors. The integrated assets and shared ownership of Jones Power and Rockport Terminals enables one team to perform all movement, handling, and storage between the pipe mill and the project right of way”.

“This is the exact type of project and client we had in mind when we expanded our facilities in 2020”, said Rockport Terminals CEO Ross Stevenson. The Jindal organization is fantastic to work with, and we are privileged to continue to partner with them after successfully delivering multiple projects in the past. Our team is excited to collaborate on this project and looks forward to providing Jindal outstanding port logistics for many years to come”.
