Major Corpus Christi Explosions

Strategically located near major United States oil and gas production areas, including the Eagle Ford Shale and the Permian Basin, the energy industry is a major driver of Corpus Christi’s economy.

In fact, since a ban on crude oil exports was lifted in December 2015, the Port of Corpus Christi has emerged as the nation’s top oil export port. The Port is also a major crude oil refinery hub, with six refineries producing crude oil, diesel, gasoline, fuel oil, naphtha, jet fuel, and other petroleum-based commodities.

As a center for the oil and gas industry, Corpus Christi has also seen more than its share of major industrial explosions and accidents in recent years. The most serious incidents included:

Magellan Midstream Tank Explosion

On December 8, 2020, seven Shelton Services contractors suffered burns when an empty oil storage tank exploded at a petroleum processing facility operated by Houston, Texas-based Magellan Midstream.

The contractors, some of whom sustained critical burns, were cleaning sludge from the tank when the blast occurred. People living near the facility were ordered to shelter-in-place for about two hours.

Orion Barge Accident and Pipeline Explosion

On August 21, 2020, a marine barge owned by Houston, Texas-based Orion Group Holdings Inc. struck a submerged propane pipeline during dredging operations in the Corpus Christi Ship Channel. The collision ignited a fire that quickly spread to a grain elevator.

Eight Orion crew were injured in the blast, and four were reported missing in the immediate aftermath. The remains of two were recovered later that morning, while their comrades’ remains were discovered two days later.

A fifth crewmember died of his injuries in November 2020.

Port Aransas Barge

The Buster Bouchard tugboat exploded shortly after 4:00 a.m. on October 20, 2017, as the vessel was transporting 144,000 barrels of crude oil to Corpus Christi, Texas.

Searchers recovered the remains of one missing crewmember several days after the blast. A second was never found and is presumed dead.

Federal investigators later determined that the explosion was triggered by flammable vapors that had been allowed to accumulate in a void space. They’re probe documented two cracks near the original bulkhead. Because these cracks were never repaired, the integrity of the number one port tank had been compromised.
