TEAC strongly supports the multiple onshore terminals that have been proposed or are in development at Ingleside, Harbor Island and other sheltered areas within the Corpus Christi Bay. All of these will be safe, secure facilities that will create Texas jobs and connect Texas energy to the global economy. Only one company and project is pursuing a reckless path that ignores local authorities, our local economy and will put the pristine beaches and abundant sea life of Corpus Christi, Mustang Island and South Padre Island at risk.

No local permitting requirements Environmentally dangerous
Local job creation
Highly regulated by local, state and federal authorities
Robust security and facility safety monitoring
Instant response time in case of emergency

Why Join TEAC?
We need YOU to help make a change in the energy industry!
The Texas Energy Advocates Coalition was founded in 2015 and we kicked off our first event in 2016. Since then, we have gained membership left and right because a lot of Texas residents want their voices to be heard! We are now an Energy Chamber - the only Chamber in Texas with a focus on energy and business. We currently operate out of San Antonio, Corpus Christi and Houston, which is where you'll find all of our business mixers. At our mixers, you can network with top executives, entrepreneurs and blue collar workers. We encourage diversity and variety with our meetings and mixers because you never know where the next great idea will come from.
We focus 100% of our efforts on advocating for the oil & gas industry. We feel like the industry needs support and we're here to make our voices loud and clear to lawmakers
We focus about half of our mixers and meetings on actual networking. We feel a good strong network starts with YOU and ends at the top!
Mixing it up
Part of the fun we have while advocating is our mixers. We've had some of the most engaging and productive meetings during these mixers and we'd love to see you there!
Getting work done
The whole reason why TEAC begun was to get laws passed in favor of the energy industry. We get work done and lawmakers are taking notice.
