Sentinel Midstream and Freepoint Commodities have aligned to further the construction, operation, and utilisation of Texas GulfLink, a subsidiary of Sentinel. 

Texas GulfLink is a deepwater crude oil export facility that will be located off the coast of Freeport, Texas, and will be capable of fully loading VLCC vessels.

Texas GulfLink will include an onshore oil storage terminal connected by a 42″ pipeline to a manned offshore platform approximately 30 miles off the Gulf Coast. From the platform, the oil will be transported to two Single Point Mooring buoys to allow for VLCCs to receive two million barrels of crude oil with loading rates up to 85,000 barrels per hour. Designed around safety, the offshore platform will have around-the-clock monitoring, which will provide shippers with a safe and reliable mooring operation for VLCCs and other crude carrier vessels.
