Bright Star Energy, Inc. is a sister company to C.W. Matthews that manages the asphalt terminals and purchases all liquid asphalt.
Bright Star has two (2) asphalt terminals. The Rockmart, Georgia terminal has a storage capacity of 391,000 barrels and is serviced by Norfolk-Southern RR and CSX RR. The rail siding has a capacity to unload 20 cars at a time at 2,000 gpm. All tanks at this facility have the capability to blend materials. Georgia is primarily a 64-22 & 67-22 spec state, but we take different materials such as other PG grades, 0-10 PEN, flux, etc. to blend on spec product. We have a PMA plant at this facility to produce our own 76-22.
Our other asphalt terminal is located in Chattanooga, Tennessee on the Tennessee River and can accommodate barge cargo only. The capacity of this terminal is currently 255,000 barrels of asphalt. This terminal accepts on-spec 64-22 and 67-22 and all other materials to blend to on-spec product.
