Enterprise to shut its Texas PDH plant for turnaround in February

January 20/2021

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Enterprise Product Partners' propane dehydrogenation (PDH) unit in Mont Belvieu, Texas, will be offline for a turnaround in February, reported S&P Global with reference to US olefin market participants' statement Jan. 13.

Sources said the PDH unit will go offline for scheduled maintenance on Feb. 1 for approximately six weeks. This PDH unit has the capacity of 750,000 mt/y of propylene.

Enterprise was not immediately available to comment on operations Jan. 13.

The turnaround could further tighten supply of polymer-grade propylene in the market.

As MRC informed previously, in July 2020, Enterprise Products shut its PDH unit in Mont Belvieu for maintenance.

Propylene is the main feedstock for the production of polypropylene (PP).

According to MRC's DataScope report, PP imports into Russia increased by 21% year on year to about 202,000 tonnes in the first eleven months of 2020. Propylene homopolymer (homopolymer PP) accounted for the main increase in imports.

Enterprise Products Partners L.P. is an American midstream natural gas and crude oil pipeline company with headquarters in Houston, Texas. It acquired GulfTerra in September 2004. The company ranked No. 105 in the 2018 Fortune 500 list of the largest United States corporations by total revenue
