Aug. 16 — Port expansion plans, including widening the Corpus Christi Ship Channel, stand to increase oil and gas export capacity to 3 million barrels a day from the 1 million barrels currently being shipped from Port Corpus Christi. Texas Railroad Commissioner Ryan Sitton told those attending a quarterly meeting of the Eagle Ford Consortium in Corpus Christi on Aug. 16 that he has made increasing both the width and depth of the channel a top priority.
