Enterprise Products Partners (EPD) says it will construct the world's largest ethane export terminal at the Houston Ship Channel, signing a 30-year agreement with the Port of Houston Authority for use of facilities adjacent to EPD's existing Morgan’s Point terminal.

EPD also plans to build a pipeline from its Mont Belvieu natural gas liquids fractionation and storage complex to provide direct access to the ethane supply.

The export terminal, which is expected to begin operations in Q3 2016, will be able to load fully refrigerated ethane at ~10K bbl/hour.
