Enterprise to develop infrastructure for ethylene storage

Apr '17
Enterprise Products Partners L.P, a leading North American provider of midstream energy services, is all set to develop the infrastructure for ethylene storage. The company is repurposing a large, high-capacity ethylene storage well at its Mont Belvieu, Texas complex. The ethylene project is expected to complete in the third quarter of 2018.

Following the project completion, the 5.3 million barrel cavern will be able to inject/withdraw ethylene at a rate of 2,000 barrels per hour (BPH), expandable to 4,000 BPH. There are seven third party ethylene pipelines within two miles of the ethylene well, providing significant connectivity opportunities into the high-capacity system.

Further supporting its ethylene capabilities, Enterprise is building a new 24-mile, 12-inch diameter ethylene pipeline from Mont Belvieu to Bayport, Texas with the potential to connect both producing and consuming sites south of the Houston Ship Channel to Mont Belvieu. The ethylene pipeline will be routed through Enterprise’s ethane export terminal at Morgan’s Point, which provides the partnership future flexibility should it develop ethylene export capabilities at the Morgan’s Point marine terminal.

"As US ethylene production capacity expands over the next three years, access to reliable logistics services will be needed, and Enterprise is ideally positioned to fill the gap," said RB Herrscher, senior vice president, Petrochemical for Enterprise’s general partner. "Enterprise has been operating ethylene storage facilities and pipelines for more than 20 years. These growth capital projects will expand our ethylene system to meet the growing needs of the petrochemical industry. These new storage and transportation assets will also complement our existing capabilities, giving us the foundation for extending our ethylene value chain even further." (RR)
