Enterprise expands Houston Ship Channel LPG export terminal

Enterprise Products Partners LP (EPP) has expanded its LPG export terminal at the Houston Ship Channel (HSC) by 1.5 million bbl/month (2,500 bbl/hr) to 9 million bbl/month of fully refrigerated, low-ethane propane. The expansion will allow EPP to accommodate three additional ships per month.

The company also is making progress on a refrigeration train that will increase loading rates by another 11,000 bbl/hr by the fourth quarter. Once this final expansion phase is complete EPP will be able to load up to 16 million bbl/month, or roughly 29 vessels. To help ensure adequate supply to the docks, the partnership is completing a dedicated 30-in. OD LPG pipeline from Mont Belvieu, Tex., to the terminal.

Kinder Morgan Energy Partners LP also is expanding its HSC terminals, in its case to provide additional refined product storage and dock services (OGJ Online, Oct. 14, 2014).
