Phillips 66 has begun operations of its 100,000-bpd NGL fractionator located at its Sweeny Complex in Old Ocean, TX. Sweeny Fractionator One supplies purity ethane and LPG to the petrochemical industry and heating markets. It is supported by 250 miles of new pipelines and a multimillion-barrel storage cavern complex.
The LPGs produced at Sweeny Fractionator One are delivered via pipeline to local petrochemical customers as well as to the market hub at Mont Belvieu. Phillips 66 will have the capability to place the LPG into global markets upon completion of its 150,000-bpd Freeport LPG Export Terminal in the second half of 2016.
