HOUSTON, US: Enterprise Products Partners LP (EPD) said that is evaluating the potential curtailment of natural gas liquid (NGL) fractionation and storage services at its Mont Belvieu complex, while the company sustained minor damage to its assets on the US Gulf Coast, due to the cumulative effects of the impacts of Hurricane Harvey.

The impacts from Hurricane Harvey include but are not limited to, the limitation of critical services provided by third parties, such as nitrogen supplies, flooding, and access to facilities. These impacts are exacerbated by the disruptions to energy demand caused by Hurricane Harvey's effects on refineries and petrochemical facilities on the US Gulf Coast and the closure of all ports on the Texas Gulf Coast, which limit access to export markets.

The cumulative effect of these issues has caused brine containment issues and a reduction of fractionation capacity at Enterprise's Mont Belvieu complex. As a result, without relief from these difficulties, Enterprise is evaluating the curtailment of NGL fractionation and storage services.
