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.”
