Contract worker dies in fire at Mont Belvieu complex

By OGJ editors
HOUSTON, Feb. 10
-- Enterprise Products Partners LP reported a contract worker died in a fire in the west storage network at the company’s Mont Belvieu, Tex., complex about 35 miles east of Houston (OGJ Online, Feb. 8, 2011).

“Enterprise offers its condolences to the family and friends of the worker and will be working closely with authorities to determine the cause of the fire,” the company said.

Enterprise's Mont Belvieu facilities, including two of its four NGL fractionation units, are online and operational after a Feb. 8 fire broke out in part of its jointly owned MTBV NGL storage network.

The MTBV NGL storage area that burned is jointly owned by Enterprise and Duncan Energy Partners LP. The fire occurred in an NGL storage area away from the main part of the MTBV complex that houses Enterprise's NGL and propylene fractionators, butane isomerization units, and other processing facilities, none of which were damaged by the fire.

Enterprise said “gas processing facilities and gas plant production were not materially affected by service disruptions” from the fire.

All facilities directly affected by the fire have been isolated, and Enterprise said it was working toward resuming full operations.

Enterprise Products Partners provides midstream energy services, NGLs, crude oil, refined products and petrochemicals. Duncan Energy Partners also provides midstream energy services.
