Enterprise, Navigator Gas to Build Ethylene Export Terminal

Enterprise Products Partners and Navigator Holdings entered into a 50/50 joint venture to build a new ethylene export facility along the U.S. Gulf Coast that will have the capacity to export 1 mtpa of ethylene. 

The project is supported by long-term contracts with anchor customers including U.S. ethylene producer Flint Hills Resources and a major Japanese trading company. 

Refrigerated storage for 30,000 tons of ethylene will be constructed on-site and provide the capability to load ethylene at rates of 1,000 tons per hour. The facilities are expected to be in service by the first quarter of 2020. 

Enterprise is also developing a high-capacity ethylene salt dome storage facility at its complex in Mont Belvieu, Texas, with a capacity of 600 million pounds and an injection/withdrawal rate of 420,000 pounds per hour. The storage facility is expected to begin service in the first quarter of 2019.
