State of Texas
Gulf Coast Port Report
by the West Gulf Maritime Association.
Monday, December 14, 2009

Several Gulf Coast ports are closed due to heavy fog. Below is a status report compiled by the West Gulf Maritime Association:

 

Port status:

Brownsville: Open

Corpus Christi: Closed – 8 vessels waiting inbound, 7 outbound

Point Comfort: Closed – 2 inbound, 2 outbound

Freeport: Closed – 1 outbound

Galveston/Texas City: Closed – 5 outbound, 15 inbound

Houston: Closed – 39 inbound, 36 outbound

Port Arthur/Beaumont: Closed – 1 outbound, 1 inbound

Lake Charles: Closed – 1 inbound, 1 outbound vessel

 

 

Fog is expected to lift today temporarily in some areas but is expected to settle again by nightfall. The fog is expected to lift when a cold front moves through the coastal areas tomorrow.

It is expected that crude oil vessels will be moved on a priority basis when the channels open. Houston Pilots may also opt for one-way traffic in order to facilitate ship movements.
