For the full year, export coal volumes increased by almost 38 percent to a record of approximately 20.7 million tons versus 2011, led by the Pier IX, IMT and Port of Houston terminals. Domestic coal volumes declined. Good results from the liquids terminals noted above also benefited earnings for 2012. In addition to Watco, the purchase in June 2011 of the Port Arthur, Texas terminal that handles petcoke for the Total refinery contributed to annual growth in this segment.For 2012, Terminals handled 65.3 million barrels of ethanol, up 7 percent from 2011. Combined, the terminals and products pipelines business segments handled 98.4 million barrels of ethanol, an increase of 8 percent over 2011.
