Enterprise to Expand LPG Capacity at Houston Terminal

Provider of midstream energy services Enterprise Products Partners (EPD) is looking to expand the liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) capacity at its Houston Ship Channel terminal.

Namely, the company launched the construction process to increase loading capacity for LPG), primarily propane and butane, at the Enterprise Hydrocarbon Terminal (EHT) by 175,000 barrels per day, or around 5 million barrels per month. The expansion would bring total LPG export capacity at EHT to 720,000 BPD, or approximately 21 million barrels per month.

Upon completion of this expansion project, EHT will have the capability to load as many as six very large gas carriers (VLGCs) simultaneously, while maintaining the option to switch between propane and butane loadings. Once operational, the expansion will allow EHT to load a single VLGC in less than 24 hours. The company expectes the capacity would be available in the second half of 2019.

“Enterprise is already the largest exporter of propane in the world and this expansion project will increase our ability to export LPGs from the EHT facility by another 30 percent with nominal capital investment,” said A.J. Teague, chief executive officer of Enterprise’s general partner.
