Enterprise Products Partners is expanding and modifying two Gulf Coast petrochemical pipelines and also building a new third pipeline.

According to an Enterprise press release, the new projects will take its polymer grade propylene distribution pipeline system length to 587 miles and connect to more than 30 petrochemical facilities.

The pipeline network is fed by six propane and propylene fractionators at Mont Belvieu which is owned by Enterprise Products.

As part of the project, Enterprise will convert the 149 mile North Dean pipeline from refinery grade propylene to polymer grade propylene by January 2017.

“The converted pipeline will run from Enterprise’s processing hub at Mont Belvieu and serve petrochemical facilities as far south as Seadrift, Texas in Calhoun County,” it added.

The second project will convert the 263 mile Lou-Tex pipeline between Sorrento and Mont Belvieu from chemical grade propylene to carry polymer grade propylene.

It has also proposed setting up of a new 10 inch refinery grade propylene pipeline running 65 miles from Sorrento to Breaux Bridge, both in Louisiana and is expected to be in service by 2017.

The company also informed that it will upgrade rail receipt points at Mont Belvieu to handle as many as 100 refinery grade propylene cars per day. (AR)
