Enterprise Products Partners L.P. to expand its PGP fractionation facility

May 10/2011

(Plastemart) -- Enterprise Products Partners L.P. plans to expand its polymer grade propylene (PGP) fractionation facility at the partnership's Mont Belvieu, Texas complex, which will add on an annual basis, approximately 7,500 bpd (500 mln lbs) of incremental PGP production. The expansion is expected to be in service in Q1-2013. When completed, the expansion would increase Enterprise's net capacity to produce PGP at its Mont Belvieu facility by more than 10% from 73,000 bpd (approx 4.9 bln lbs pa) to roughly 80,500 bpd (5.4 bln lbs pa).

To produce PGP, which is approximately 99.5 percent pure propylene, Enterprise fractionates refinery grade propylene (RGP), which is approximately 60 percent to 65 percent propylene, with the remainder being propane and butane. PGP is used in the production of plastic consumer products, coatings, pharmaceuticals, detergents and solvents.
