Update: Enterprise loads PGP export cargoes from Gulf Coast terminal
HOUSTON, July 19, 2016 (PCW) –- Enterprise Product Partners on Tuesday said it had loaded the first two vessels of polymer grade propylene for export at its terminal along the Houston Ship Channel.
The PGP capacity at the facility is 5000 mt/day with supplies coming from its fractionators and storage wells at its Mont Belvieu complex.
Maritime data and shipping sources said the two vessels were the Stella Kosan and PGC Aratos. The former is headed to Antwerp and was lifted by Kolmar, while the latter’s destination is Altamira in Mexico and was fixed by Indelpro.
“With the addition of our 1.65 billion pound PDH plant, which is scheduled to begin service in the second quarter of 2017, Enterprise will have the capability to produce 7.5 billion pounds of propylene per year, sufficient to meet the needs of our domestic and international customers,” said EPD’s CEO Jim Teague.
