Enterprise Products Partners LP is holding a binding open season from June 5 through July 11 for capacity to transport propane to Mont Belvieu, TX, on the Appalachia-to-Texas (ATEX) pipeline. The ATEX pipeline has long-term contracts in place for ethane transportation to Mont Belvieu. The addition of propane service will not impact Enterprise’s obligations to ethane shippers. To accommodate propane shipments, Enterprise would loop a portion of ATEX, add pumping capacity and install additional facilities for the delivery of specification ethane and propane at destination points. “Transporting propane to Mont Belvieu, the largest, most liquid trading and storage hub, will provide northeast producers with a reliable outlet for their excess propane and help maximize the value of their production,” said Michael Creel, CEO of Enterprise’s general partner.
