EPP begins refined products exports from Beaumont

Enterprise Products Partners LP (EPP) has loaded the first cargo of refined products for export from its reactivated marine terminal in Beaumont, Tex. The terminal on the Neches River can load as much as 15,000 bbl/hr and includes a dock with 40-ft draft to accommodate Panamax vessels with a capacity as great as 400,000 bbl.

The terminal has access to more than 12 million bbl of refined products storage and receives products from eight refineries with a total of 3.3 million b/d capacity as well as the Colonial Pipeline. Improvements and modifications required to resume operations at the terminal included dredging, pipeline construction, and installation of loading arms and vapor recovery systems and are supported by shipper commitments.

EPP’s future plans for the Beaumont refined products terminal include adding a second dock and on-site storage for blending components.

The company is also expanding its refined products marine terminal on the Houston Ship Channel (OGJ Online, May 30, 2013).
