Harvey damages keep Port from operating without restrictions

The Port of Corpus Christi may look like it is fully reopened, with vessels traveling through the ship channel, but the Port is still operating under restrictions nearly a month after Hurricane Harvey. 

Port officials are working closely with their federal partners, the U.S. Coast Guard and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, to achieve a full reopening of the Port. 

“The Port of Corpus Christi is a national strategic Port,” said Sean Strawbridge, Deputy Executive Director & Chief Operating Officer. “We’re the largest Port for exports of U.S.-produced crude. We will be the largest Port primarily for U.S.-produced energy in the coming years. We’re also a strategic military Port. So it’s important that we’re open for safe passage of both our commercial customers and our military partners.”
