Petroplex International LLC (“Petroplex”) is a development company of bulk liquids storage tank terminals based in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Petroplex is a partnership of local influential businesspeople with deep roots in the Louisiana communities and world-class companies with experience and expertise in building, managing and operating storage tank terminals. For the past 5 years, Petroplex has been primarily focused on bringing a new major petroleum storage facility to the St. James, Louisiana market, an important and growing crude oil refining hub and delivery destination. Petroplex’s site in Vacherie, St. James Parish is located on the west bank of the Mississippi River at river mile market 148, approximately halfway between Baton Rouge and New Orleans, and features more than 3,000 feet of contiguous river frontage. Petroplex is fully permitted to operate and is now construction ready with a state-of-art project design. Construction is planned to commence in Q3 2014, and the facility is projected to be in service in Q1 2016. When on-line, the facility will offer a full suite of storage, terminalling and transportation services and will be the only independent “fee for service” terminal in the strategic St. James energy hub.
