Fire extinguished at Enterprise's Mont Belvieu complex

HOUSTON, Feb. 9
-- Enterprise Products Partners LP, Houston, said Feb. 9 that it continues searching for a contract worker missing since a Feb. 8 fire at the west storage network at the company’s Mont Belvieu, Tex., complex about 35 miles east of Houston (OGJ Online, Feb. 8, 2011).

Much of the residual product in lines around the storage network burned off, and Enterprise cut off all flow of any product that was feeding the fire, so it is now out, a spokesman said Feb. 9.

Cause of the fire will be investigated, the spokesman said, adding that the company also is evaluating the damages to the plant.

Previously, Enterprise reported that the main facilities at the Mont Belvieu complex “were not damaged” and “remain operational.” These unaffected systems include “the natural gas liquids fractionators, the propylene fractionators, the butane isomerization units, the octane enhancement facility, north and east facilities, and the import-export terminals on the Houston Ship Channel.”
