Petrochemical Project Equipment Barged Upriver

Monday, June 29
The two towboats, M/V Miss Geri and M/V Hayden Evan, that delivered large equipment to the Pierce Landing offloading ramp, (quarter mile below the FM 522 bridge) were seen returning outbound to Port Freeport to get the next load.
On Monday, after flooding for a week, the river was finally low enough for the first of four shipments of equipment used in building the Chevron Phillips Chemical Co. polyethylene facility in Old Ocean, to be transported up river by barge. The next three shipments will follow 3 - 4 days apart. A head’s up has been given concerning the July 4th boat parade on Saturday.
