HOUSTON (ICIS)--Enterprise is expanding its liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) export terminal on the Houston Ship Channel, increasing propane loading capacity by 20%, the US midstream energy company announced on Wednesday.

Enterprise will increase the loading capacity of fully refrigerated, low-ethane propane by 1.5m bbl/month, bringing total design capacity to 9m bbl/month when the project is completed in the first quarter of 2015.

In March, Enterprise completed an expansion of its LPG export terminal, increasing propane capacity to 7.5m bbl/month from 4m bbl/month.

Enterprise said the facility has performed above expectations and is expected to continue to do so as natural gas liquids (NGL) production from shale and propane demand as a feedstock continue to grow.
