Dallas, TX, April 01, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- ALL-Q-TELL Corporation (OTCBB: PK: ALLQ) today announced that Mr. Terry W. Gee, has joined the company’s Business Advisory Board. Mr. Gee has had a distinguished and illustrious career as a businessman, educator, and legislator.
Mr. Gee's most impressive body of work occurred during the eight years (1996-2004) he served as Executive Director of the Louisiana Offshore Oil Port ("LOOP"). Under his leadership, LOOP was developed as America's first and only deepwater port. LOOP is owned by Marathon Pipe Line LLC, Murphy Oil Corporation, and Shell Oil Company.
The port facility is located in the Gulf of Mexico, 18 miles south of Grand Isle, Louisiana, in 110 feet of water. LOOP is the only port in the U.S. capable of offloading deep draft tankers known as Ultra Large Crude Carriers (ULCC) and Very Large Crude Carriers (VLCC).
The port consists of three single-point mooring buoys used for the offloading of crude tankers and a marine terminal consisting of a two-level pumping platform and a three-level control platform. The onshore oil storage facility, 25 miles inland, is connected to the port complex by a 48-inch diameter pipeline. It provides interim storage for crude oil before it is delivered via connecting pipelines to refineries on the Gulf Coast and in the Midwest.
The oil is stored in eight underground caverns leached out of a naturally occurring salt dome. The caverns are capable of storing approximately 50 million barrels of crude oil. In addition, LOOP has an above-ground tank farm consisting of six 600,000 barrel tanks.
Four pipelines connect the onshore storage facility to refineries in Louisiana and along the Gulf Coast. LOOP also operates the 53-mile, 48-inch LOCAP pipeline that connects LOOP to CAPLINE at St. James, Louisiana. CAPLINE is a 40-inch pipeline that transports crude oil to several Midwest refineries.
LOOP is connected to over 50 percent of the U.S. refinery capacity and has offloaded over 7 billion barrels of foreign crude oil since its inception.
ALL-Q-TELL's Chairman and President, Don Hodge, stated: "It is indeed an honor and a privilege to welcome Mr. Gee to ALLQ's Business Advisory Board. His specialized expertise will be invaluable as we build ALLQ into the world's leading intelligence and security company. Seaports, oil refineries, pipelines, and petrochemical plants are at the top of terrorist target lists. ALLQ intends to provide a unique and proprietary armamentarium of products and services to safeguard such facilities around the world."
