Rail Car Cleaning Facility in Orange, Texas Is Now Accepting Tank Car Cleaning Reservations

ORANGE, TX--(Marketwired - December 16, 2015) - LaPoint Energy Partners, Inc. announces they are now accepting rail car cleaning reservations for July 2016 at their La Point Energy Liquids Terminal #1 in Orange, Texas.

The LaPoint Energy Partners Liquids Terminal #1 is the largest dedicated railcar cleaning facility in the United States. It will serve some of the largest refineries in Texas and Louisiana including Motiva's three facilities in the area as well as clients like Exxon/Mobil, Valero, and Chevron-Phillips.

This multi-million dollar facility will have the capability of cleaning 100 rail cars per day, with its patent pending processes and new automated tank car cleaning technology. The facility will utilize the latest environmental friendly cleaning processes that meet and often exceed the stringent local, state and federal environmental standards. Reducing the wait time for rail car cleaning services and the time involved to clean each rail car, while safely recycling waste by-products have been key goals for Daymon LaPoint, founder, and CEO of LaPoint Energy Partners. "Our purpose-built facility will set the standard for the best environmental, safety, and cleaning practices in the crude tank car cleaning industry," comments LaPoint.

Currently crude oil tank car users wait up to nine months to have tank cars cleaned. The long wait time for cleaning services is a costly logistical problem for mid-stream transportation operators. LaPoint and his partners saw this business opportunity and developed a state of the art rail car cleaning facility on 150+ acres in the Beaumont area near key oil and gas clients. "LaPoint's rail car complex will be the most well capitalized rail car cleaning facility I have seen in my twenty years of financing industrial projects," said Sam Thacker, interim CFO for LaPoint Energy Partners. "The engineering, technology, and financing of this facility will attract clients to contact rail car cleaning services from LaPoint," adds Thacker. Reservations and needs assessments for rail car cleaning services can be made by phone at 409-203-6060 or online at

LaPoint Energy Partners, Inc. is a based in Orange County, Texas and is owned and managed by local business interests with over 50 years of combined experience in the oil services, engineering and construction industries.
