Enterprise to construct NGL fractionator

Enterprise Products Partners LP has announced plans to construct a sixth natural gas liquids (NGL) fractionator at its Mont Belvieu, Texas facility that will increase capacity there by 75,000bpd. The new fractionation facility will accommodate continued growth of liquids-rich natural gas production from the prolific Eagle Ford Shale basin in South Texas. In anticipation of the expansion, Enterprise has already obtained the necessary approvals and permits that will allow the partnership to promptly begin construction of the new facility, which is projected to begin service in early 2013. At that time, Enterprise will have the capability to fractionate more than 450,000bpd of NGLs at its Mont Belvieu complex. System-wide the partnership’s net fractionation capacity will increase to more than 780,000bpd.
