The US Immigrant Investor Program (EB-5)

The EB-5 Visa Program offers investors, their spouses, and their unmarried children under the age of 21, the opportunity to apply for a Green Card (permanent residence) if they make an investment in a commercial enterprise in the United States that creates 10 jobs

About the EB-5 Program

Orissa International offers the EB-5 program to foreign investors that want to obtain US permanent residency, and US citizenship, for their families. Administered by the United States Citizenship & Immigration Services (USCIS), the program is one of the fastest ways to get US permanent residency, and it has no requirements for the foreign national to be sponsored by a company or relative.

We have a 20-year track record in consulting EB-5 investors, and have a 100% approval rate. We work with a leading Regional Center which has facilitated more than 7,800 green card approvals, raised more than US$3 billion in EB-5 capital and repaid US$1.8 billion to investors. Its performance has been certified by an independent audit conducted in conformance with standards established by the American Institute of Public Certified Accountants.

Current Project (March 2022):  Jefferson Terminal – Phase II

Jefferson Energy Companies operates a crude oil and refined products logistics terminal (“Jefferson Terminal”) with pipeline, railway, marine, and refinery connectivity in Beaumont, Texas, at the heart of North America’s largest refining and petrochemical regions.

In July 2021, Jefferson entered into a 10-year agreement to expand terminal services to ExxonMobil Oil Corporation, a wholly owned subsidiary of Exxon Mobil Corporation. As part of the agreement, Jefferson Energy is constructing approximately 1.9 million barrels of new storage capacity at the Jefferson Energy terminal and five additional connecting pipelines between the ExxonMobil Beaumont refinery and Jefferson Energy terminal that will increase utilization of its existing marine infrastructure (Phase II expansion). Combined with the successful completion of the ExxonMobil Cross Channel Pipelines project (Phase I expansion) in February 2021, the phase II expansion will further strengthens the strong relationship between ExxonMobil and Jefferson Energy.

ExxonMobil announced its Growing the Gulf Initiative in 2019 to invest more than $20bn over ten years towards the development and expansion of several facilities in the US Gulf Coast region including the Beaumont refinery. Jefferson Energy is working with ExxonMobil to build a domestic and international refined products hub in Beaumont that provide best in class logistics optionality to ExxonMobil customers.

A Strategic Project Location

Jefferson Terminal is strategically located at the Port of Beaumont, in the heart of the Gulf Coast, which is the largest market in the United States for crude oil and petroleum products, representing over 50% of the country’s refining capacity.

Jefferson Terminal is proximate to four major refineries, including ExxonMobil, Motiva, and Valero, which, together, have the capacity to process over 1.5 million barrels of crude oil daily.

Jefferson Terminal’s location offers these refineries and other customers with efficient access to multiple sources of crude oil and other petroleum products, including both domestic and imported products, and allows Jefferson Terminal to serve as a key hub in the supply chain for both producers and refineries.

Strong Market Outlook

  • Sustained Gulf Coast refinery demand of heavy crude from Canada as well as demand of crude-by-rail and other product streams.
  • Growing light crude oil exports as US shale oil production outpaces refinery demand in the Gulf Coast.
  • Growing refined product exports to Mexico.
  • Revenue through storage fees and throughput fees for every barrel handled.
