Enterprise Hydrocarbons Terminal
The Enterprise Hydrocarbons Terminal (“EHT”) is located on the Houston Ship Channel and provides terminaling services to exporters, marketers, distributors, chemical companies and major integrated oil companies. EHT has extensive waterfront access consisting of seven deepwater ship docks, a barge dock and a lay berth dock. The terminal can accommodate vessels with up to a 45 foot draft, including Suezmax tankers, which are the largest tankers that can navigate the Houston Ship Channel. We believe that our location on the Houston Ship Channel enables us to handle larger vessels than our competitors because our waterfront has fewer draft and beam (width) restrictions. The size and structure of our waterfront allows us to receive and unload products for our customers and provide terminaling services.
EHT can load refrigerated cargoes of low-ethane propane and/or butane (collectively referred to as LPG) onto multiple tanker vessels simultaneously. Our LPG export services continue to benefit from increased NGL supplies produced from domestic shale plays, international demand for propane as a feedstock in ethylene production, and for power generation and heating purposes.
EHT also provides terminaling services involving crude oil, petrochemical and refined products. EHT’s assets and activities associated with crude oil terminaling and storage are classified and presented as a component of our Crude Oil Pipelines & Services business segment. EHT’s activities associated with petrochemicals and refined products are classified and described within our Petrochemical & Refined Products Services business segment.
Morgan's Point Ethane Export Terminal
The Morgan’s Point Ethane Export Terminal located on the Houston Ship Channel, has a nameplate loading capacity of approximately 10,000 barrels per hour of fully refrigerated ethane and is the largest of its kind in the world. The terminal supports domestic production of U.S. ethane from shale plays by providing the global petrochemical industry with access to a low-cost feedstock option and opportunities for supply diversification. Ethane volumes handled by the terminal are sourced from our Mont Belvieu-area NGL fractionators and storage complex.
