US-based Enterprise Products Partners has added fueling capabilities for deep-draft vessels at its Houston Ship Channel export facility.

As of June 1, 2018, the company said it is the exclusive provider of residual marine fuel (RMG 380) and marine gas oil (MGO) at its Enterprise Hydrocarbons Terminal (EHT).

Enterprise said that these fuels are the primary transportation fuels used by deep-draft vessels that dock at the EHT facility.

“Being able to fuel ships as they load and offload product at our EHT marine terminal significantly streamlines the process, saving our customers time and money by not having to stop at a third party facility,” James Teague, chief executive officer of Enterprise’s general partner, said.

RMG 380 and MGO are delivered to the terminal by barge and stored in dedicated tanks with approximately 300,000 barrels of capacity. Pipelines transport the fuels to each of EHT’s seven docks.
