Enterprise Products Partners LP has announced a series of projects designed to provide an additional 55 000 bpd of fractionation capacity at existing facilities in Texas and Louisiana, US.
As part of the initiative, Enterprise plans to optimise its Shoup fractionator in Nueces County, Texas by expanding and repurposing a portion of the partnership’s South Texas pipeline system. Construction of approximately 21 miles of new pipeline along with the conversion of approximately 65 miles of existing natural gas pipeline to natural gas liquids NGL service would allow Enterprise to supply Shoup with 25 000 bpd of additional NGL volumes. The expanded pipeline capacity is expected to be available in 3Q19.
In Louisiana, Enterprise plans to restart its 30 000 bpd Tebone fractionator in Ascension Parish. The plant is connected by pipeline to each of the partnership’s Louisiana natural gas processing plants, as well as its NGL fractionation and storage hub in Mont Belvieu, Texas. The resumption of service at Tebone, which is expected in 1Q19, will complement Enterprise’s Norco and Promix fractionators, providing another option for NGLs delivered to Mont Belvieu.
