How Much Resin?




22 Billion Lbs/Yr MORE Than we produce today.
30% will be Exported- SO- Just for Exports….
That is 107,300 more Resin Rail-Cars
That is 23,800 more SIT storage spaces in
Greater Harris County
 That is 400,000 more container loads/year
 Packaged in 40 Million More Feet of Warehouses.

Slide 6
Gulf Coast Growth

Shale Gas Boom = Feedstock = Resin Production
 Gulf Coast Growth
- New Stream Crackers
- New Reactors
- De-bottleneck projects
 ExxonMobil
- Current Gulf Coast exports
- North American Growth Project
= ~300kTa
= 1300kTa
* 1 X Steam Cracker
* 2 X Polyethylene Reactors
- Proposed 1 X Polyethylene Reactor = 650kTa
Potential growth from 300kTa to 2250kTa
Potential growth from 50 to 360 trucks per day
Proprietary
Slide 7
Growth Challenges - Rail
 Current Operations
- Load Hopper railcars for storage / transportation
- Rail to Houston area packaging facilities or NA customers
 Growth Challenges
- Houston rail congestion
- Storage track availability
 Opportunities
- Operational opportunities with Railroads
* 7 day a week switching
* Communication with RRs / forecasting to packagers
- 286k capable track
- RR storage track (SIT) or on-site track (loads & empties)
- Packaging company rail track
- Packaging on-site or adjacent property
Proprietary
Slide 8
Growth Challenges – Packaging / Storage
 Current Operations
- Railcars offloaded to packaging lines / Seabulk loading
- Temporary storage prior to container loading
- Drayage to Port / Railheads for export
 Growth Challenges
- Packaging capacity
- Rail infrastructure
- More storage requirements / slower throughput
 Opportunities
- Communicate growth plans with packaging companies
- Commitment agreements versus enabling agreements
- Accurate volume forecasts
- Operational opportunities with Railroads
- High-speed packaging equipment
- Rail infrastructure matches capacity increases
Proprietary
Slide 9
Growth Challenges – Trucking
Current Operations
- 20’ and 40’ containers drayed to PoH and Railheads
- Container Yards / Trailer Transfers often utilized
- Port Hours – 5 days a week / 0700-1700
- Railroad Intermodal ramps open ~24 / 7
- Road weight limits – 84k lbs.(w/ permit)
Growth Challenges
- Infrastructure
- Traffic congestion
- Truck / Chassis availability
- Driver availability
- Safety
Proprietary
Slide 10
Growth Challenges – Trucking
 Opportunities

Proprietary
Slide 11
Growth Challenges - Port
 Current Operations
- Barbours Cut / Bayport container terminals
- 2013: ~ 2M TEUs
- 2013: Plastics largest export by tonnage / $ value
- ~ balanced container availability
 Growth Challenges
- Export growth
- Panama Canal Growth
- Infrastructure challenges: port depth / turning basin
 Opportunities
- Expand port operating hours (CBP)
- Shippers commit volumes to ‘off-hours’
- Shippers communicate growth plans
- Operational efficiencies
Proprietary
Slide 12
Growth Challenges – Marine Dry Cargo
 Current Operations
- All major shipping lines serve Port of Houston
- Intermodal to LA / LB
 Growth Challenges
- Container availability
- Panama Canal implications
 Opportunities
