A need to improve customer optionality and efficiency within the mid-continent gave way for the beginnings of Getka. Our focus? Terminalling, commercial hub development and customer delivery optionality. As life would have it, four guys scattered in the Midwest all with the same vision collided serendipitously to form Getka in March of 2018. Each, well-versed in their own unique area of expertise, Getka Energy is the result of a foundation built upon a unique collective of experience in midstream. Four founders, one vision, Getka.
Tortuga, named for being the strongest and safest Caribbean island port held by the Buccaneers in the mid-17th century, is a ~50-acre parcel located in the northwest corner of the Cushing south tank farm complex. Phase 1 operations will begin in January 2019, with anticipated completion of Phase 2 by Q3 2020, which will include an expanded tank farm. Tortuga will serve as the Getka stronghold for its storage and throughput across infrastructure within Oklahoma and beyond.
