Enterprise expands Norco NGL fractionator

By OGJ editors

HOUSTON, Dec. 2 -- Enterprise Products Partners LP has expanded by 40% the capacity of the natural gas liquids fractionator at its Norco, La., plant to accommodate increased volumes of mixed NGL to be fractionated from existing and new supply sources.

The expansion will enable Enterprise to fractionate 20,000-25,000 b/d more NGL and to enhance product distribution capability downstream of the facility. The company also is increasing its storage capacity and said it now will have the ability to increase plant capacity by an additional 20% at a nominal cost.

The fractionator has increased fractionation capacity to 75,000 b/d of mixed NGL feed, up from 53,000 b/d. As a result of the expansion, Norco's capacity can be further expanded to 90,000 b/d at a nominal cost, it says.

Plant throughput has averaged 70,000 b/d to date during November.
