Enterprise Products to build ethane export terminal to cut glut

  • Enterprise Products Partners (EPD) announces plans to build an ethane export facility on the Texas Gulf coast with the capacity to load 240K bbl/day, making it the largest such facility in the world; it is expected to begin operating in Q3 2016.
  • EPD says it has received strong interest in the project from abroad and is continuing discussions with potential customers that could result in fully contracting the capacity of the facility.
  • U.S. ethane supply currently exceeds demand by ~300K bbl/day and could reach 700K bbl/day by 2020, even with new ethylene capacity being built, according to the company.
