Enterprise Products Partners LP (EPP) has completed a 400-MMcfd expansion of its Acadian Haynesville Extension natural gas pipeline, increasing its capacity to 2.5 bcfd. This expansion was underwritten by long-term, take-or-pay contracts.
Enterprise’s 1.65-billion lb/year polymer-grade propylene PDH 2 plant is also scheduled for completion in second-quarter 2023 at its Mont Belvieu complex in Chambers County, Tex. S&B Engineers and Constructors Ltd. is performing engineering, procurement, and construction for the plant using Honeywell UOP technology.
The project includes a “sizeable” C3 splitter column, which S&B installed in pieces onsite using a specialized gantry crane. Other scope includes a modularized reactor section, compression equipment, multiple fired heaters, and associated infrastructure and utilities.
In second-half 2023, EPP expects to complete construction of its twelfth NGL fractionator (150,000 b/d) at Mont Belvieu, two natural gas processing plants in the Permian basin (300,000-b/d Poseidon in Midland basin and 300,000-b/d Mentone II in Delaware basin), and the first phase of its 60,000-b/d Texas Western products pipeline between Mont Belvieu and Grand Junction, Colo.
