The Port of Beaumont Board of Commissioners today voted unanimously to amend a lease agreement with Port of Beaumont Petroleum Transload Terminal, LLC for the expansion of its property at the port’s Orange County Terminal. The company is a subsidiary of Jefferson Refinery. "That amendment will expand Jefferson Refinery’s footprint on our Orange County Terminal property from about 8 acres to about 22 acres, and expand their rail unloading capacity and provide them some deepwater berth access until their marsh dock is constructed,” Port Director and CEO Chris Fisher said.
The board voted to award a $242,231 contract to Brystar Contracting, Inc. for boring in connection with the Orange County Security Infrastructure Project. The project is funded through the port security grant program.  Brystar will perform boring under the Neches River from the Beaumont facilities to the Orange County Terminal. "This project will provide fiber optic connectivity for security and other things from the Orange County Terminal to our main command and control center,” Fisher said.
The board voted to award a contract to SQSI, Inc. for the services associated with the port’s security system engineering, integration, installation and maintenance.The board voted to approve the purchase of rail switch materials for the Union Pacific Railroad Company and BNSF Orange County Terminal rail access. The purchase will complete the rail access for its Orange County Terminal rail loop. "That’s one of the final pieces of the puzzle for the entire loop project in Orange County,” Fisher said.
All items were approved.  All votes were unanimous with all members present
