The facility features approximately 900,000 barrels of storage for gasoline and diesel, and truck loading capacity of 10,000 barrels per day (bbl/d). The company expects the remainder of the system, which includes terminals in the Jal and Albuquerque, New Mexico areas, as well as the Grand Junction, Colorado area, to be placed in service later in the first half of 2024.

“Once completed, the TW Products System will provide supply reliability and diversity to the historically underserved gasoline and diesel markets in the southwest United States,” said A.J. “Jim” Teague, co-chief executive officer of Enterprise’s general partner. “By repurposing segments of our integrated Gulf Coast midstream network, which features access to the largest refining complex in the U.S., representing more than 4.5 million bbl/d of capacity, the TW Products System will provide retailers access to alternative sources of refined products, which should result in lower fuel prices for consumers in West Texas, New Mexico, Colorado and Utah.”

To supply the terminals, Enterprise is converting segments of its Chaparral and Mid-America natural gas liquids (NGLs) pipeline systems to accommodate refined products. Utilizing a batched delivery system will give the company the ability to continue transporting mixed NGLs and NGL purity products in addition to gasoline and diesel.
