Enterprise to expand polymer grade propylene capacity 73,000 bpd

31-Aug-07
Enterprise Products Partners L.P. has successfully installed its fourth propylene fractionator at the partnership's Mont Belvieu, Texas complex that is now in service. The new unit allows Enterprise to increase its production of polymer grade propylene (PGP) at the facility by 26% from 3.8 billion pounds pa (58,000 bpd), to approximately 4.8 billion pounds pa (73,000 bpd). With this additional capacity, the facility accounts for over 19% of the domestic PGP manufacturing capacity. PGP is used in the production of plastic consumer products, pharmaceuticals, detergents and solvents. This successful expansion is well timed when global demand for propylene is growing. Domestic refinery expansions and global economic growth are expected to generate 5-6% pa growth in global demand for propylene.
