Enterprise Products Partners L.P., is investigating the cause of a fire that occurred at its natural gas processing facility on 27th June in Pascagoula, Mississippi. There were no recorded injuries or impact to the surrounding community and the fire was contained inside the facility. The situation is under control and the plant has been shutdown. Enterprise personnel have been working closely with local emergency responders and the company has notified all appropriate regulatory authorities.
The Pascagoula plant receives natural gas from third party pipelines. The plant is comprised of three trains with approximately 1.5 billion ft3/d of capacity. The facility was averaging approximately 400 million ft3/d of inlet volumes.
Enterprise is working with its customers and third party facility operators to keep them apprised of the situation and help determine other available options while the Pascagoula plant is out of service.
Enterprise assumed 100% ownership of the Pascagoula plant when it purchased the outstanding interest from BP during the 1Q16.
