Enterprise to Increase Polymer-Grade Propylene Fractionation in Texas

Enterprise Products Partners is to expand its polymer-grade propylene fractionation plant at Mont Belvieu in Texas, US.

The expansion will increase the plant's capacity by 10% — equivalent to 7,500 barrels per day.

Work on the expansion is expected to be completed in the first quarter of 2013.

Polymer-grade propylene is used in the production of plastic consumer products, coatings, pharmaceuticals, detergents and solvents.
