KILGORE, Texas, May 13, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Martin Midstream Partners L.P. (MMLP) (“the Partnership”) announced that an incident occurred at its Neches Terminal in Beaumont, Texas in the early morning on Friday, May 10, 2019 causing structural damage to the terminal’s mobile ship-loader and crane. There were no injuries to plant personnel or marine crews related to this event. Until the damage is repaired, the terminal will be unable to load prilled sulfur onto oceangoing vessels.
The incident occurred during severe weather passing through the area. No other structures were impacted and all other terminalling operations are fully functional. At this time, the Partnership is not able to estimate the time necessary to repair the damage or the cash flow impact, but believes that it carries adequate insurance to protect against the losses incurred.
