Dupre Logistics opened a new office to expand its crude operations services into the Corpus Christi, Texas, market.

Dupre employees in the new terminal will serve the logistics needs of clients in the area, specifically those in the Eagle Ford Shale play. The full-service terminal has a shop, yard and driver facilities, and expects to host 30 employees.

The facility was chosen because of its versatility, location and scalability, allowing Dupre to grow with the market.

"We welcome the opportunity to serve the region's growing crude, energy and dedicated needs," says Jeff Collona, vice president of operations of Dupre Logistics.
