Maritime Administration and the U.S. Coast Guard will have a public hearing and comment session for the GulfLink offshore oil terminal project, giving local residents an opportunity to speak up about the plan.

Richardson-based Sentinel Midstream Oil Co. wants to build a $1 billion crude export terminal near Freeport that could fully load a supertanker in one day, according to Reuters. It requires an onshore tank farm to store the crude, which would be sent through a 42-inch pipeline to a deepwater port about 30 miles off the Brazoria County coast, according to the company.
