EPP begins operations on eighth Mont Belvieu NGL fractionator

Enterprise Products Partners LP (EPP) has started operations on its latest 85,000 b/d natural gas liquids fractionator at the partnership’s Mont Belvieu, Tex., complex.

The unit is the facility’s eighth fractionator, boosting total NGL fractionation capacity at Mont Belvieu to 655,000 b/d. EPP began operations on its seventh NGL fractionator, also with 85,000 b/d capacity, in September (OGJ Online, Sept. 18, 2013).

EPP said the increased capacity allows further NGL production from shale plays such as the Eagle Ford and other basins in the Rocky Mountain and Midcontinent regions. EPP now has more than 1 million b/d of NGL fractionation capacity across its systems, the company said.

The two newest fractionators were constructed as part of a joint venture with Anadarko Petroleum Corp. affiliate Western Gas Partners LP. EPP operates the units and holds 75% interest while Western Gas holds the remaining 25%.
