Enterprise To Construct NGL Fractionators; Expands Eagle Ford Midstream Network

April 2012, Vol. 239 No. 4

Enterprise Products Partners L.P. plans to construct two more NGL fractionators at its Mont Belvieu, TX complex to provide 150,000 bpd of incremental fractionation capacity.

Projected for service in late 2013, the two 75,000- bpd units, along with a sixth unit under construction and on schedule to start service later this year, would enable Enterprise to fractionate more than 610,000 bpd at Mont Belvieu.

In Eagle Ford, Enterprise is completing several key infrastructure projects and announcing expansion initiatives for delivering the NGLs that will underpin the increased fractionation capacity at Mont Belvieu. The partnership has a long-term commitment with Anadarko Energy Services that will support a 173-mile extension of Enterprise’s Eagle Ford NGL pipeline that links the partnership’s Yoakum natural gas processing site in Lavaca County to Mont Belvieu.
