GermanPort Dolphin Gives Pipeline Presentation 

Port Dolphin Energy Project Development Manager German J. Castro will discuss the company"s plans to establish an offshore deepwater port and construct a natural gas pipeline running through Port Manatee.   
Castro is the guest speaker at the July 9th Propeller Club meeting at the Bradenton Yacht Club.

Port Dolphin"s plans call for liquefied natural gas (LNG) to be offloaded to the pipeline from ships anchored at a site nearly 30 miles offshore. The proposed pipeline would connect to the Gulfstream Natural Gas System, Inc. and Tampa Electric Company (TECO) facilities on land near the port.

Throughout his career, Castro has managed permitting projects, planning/feasibility studies and environmental impact assessments throughout south Florida, the Caribbean and Latin America. He has specialized on working on project permitting issues and developed strategies to meet federal, state and local regulatory requirements in a timely manner. Previously, he worked on LNG projects in Massachusetts, the Bahamas and Venezuela.

Castro earned a bachelor"s degree in civil engineering from Metropolitan University in Caracas, Venezuela and a master"s degree in civil engineering from Cleveland State University.
