Enterprise Products Partners (EPD) announces a further expansion of its liquefied petroleum gas export terminal at Oiltanking's complex on the Houston Ship Channel, supported by a 50-year service agreement with Oiltanking Partners (OILT) to provide additional dock space and related services.

Upon expected completion of the expanded facilities by year-end 2015, EPD will have aggregate capacity to load more than 16M bbl/month of low-ethane propane and/or butane.

The expansion is in lieu of a second LPG terminal announced in Oct. 2013 and will result in more capacity than previously anticipated.
