U.S.-based Enterprise Products Partners has moved on to the next phase of expansion at its Houston Ship Channel marine terminal, the Enterprise Hydrocarbon Terminal (EHT).

Namely, the company acquired a 65-acre waterfront site on the Houston Ship Channel for the terminal expansion. The company unveiled that future plans include construction of at least two deepwater docks capable of accommodating Suezmax vessels.

Located immediately to the east of EHT, the purchased property features two existing docks, dredging infrastructure that will be utilized for maintenance and dock expansion at the site, and land for expanding Enterprise’s marine terminaling capabilities.

“As one of the last waterfront properties for sale adjacent to our existing ship channel assets, this strategic acquisition complements our world-class EHT marine terminal and strengthens our position as an industry leader in providing waterborne access,” A.J. Jim Teague, chief executive officer of Enterprise’s general partner, said.

“The growth opportunities available at the 65-acre site enhance our ability to accommodate growing U.S. hydrocarbon production which is increasingly destined for global markets.”

Combined with the EHT complex, the newly acquired assets will be part of Enterprise’s premier Gulf Coast network of marine terminals that includes 18 ship docks, and eight barge docks.
