HOUSTON -- Kinder Morgan Energy Partners LP said Monday that it will spend $106 million to buy land in Texas and build new storage tanks and a barge dock.

Kinder Morgan also will build nine tanks with a total storage capacity of 1.2 million barrels at its Galena Park terminal and build a barge dock capable of handling up to 50 barges per month and designed to help relieve congestion in the Houston Ship Channel.
In afternoon trading, Kinder Morgan's common units rose 4cents to $88.14.
