North America’s largest terminal operator Kinder Morgan Inc. is partnering with renewable diesel and sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) producer Neste Corp. to develop a raw material storage and logistics hub in Harvey, Louisiana. The site will serve as the primary location where Neste will store a variety of feedstock, including used cooking oil it collects from more than 40,000 U.S. restaurants.

Kinder Morgan will modify existing tanks and piping to enable segregated storage for various feedstocks across 30 tanks, according to Neste. The work also includes installation of a new boiler for heating tanks and railcars and infrastructure improvements for rail, truck and marine shipments. The project is expected to begin operations in early 2023 and Neste will have the option to further expand the facility.

The agreement is one of Nese’s largest U.S. commitments. The company added that the project could also help further lower the carbon intensity of its renewable diesel and SAF through a more efficient supply chain.

Kinder Morgan’s existing North American infrastructure includes 3.36 billion gallons of storage, 266 docks, 462 truck bays and 6,800 railcar spots.
