New York-listed Enterprise Products Partners, a provider of midstream energy services, has started operations as the exclusive provider of residual marine fuel at its Enterprise Hydrocarbons Terminal on the Houston Ship Channel.
The company is able to offer RMG 380 and marine gas oil (MGO) at the facility.
RMG 380 and MGO are delivered to the terminal by barge and stored in dedicated tanks with approximately 300,000 barrels of capacity. Pipelines transport the fuels to each of EHT’s seven docks.
“Being able to fuel ships as they load and offload product at our EHT marine terminal significantly streamlines the process, saving our customers time and money by not having to stop at a third party facility,” said A.J. “Jim” Teague, CEO of Enterprise’s general partner.
“This new service reflects the creativity and commitment of our people as they continue to find new ways to maximise our assets to capitalize on growth opportunities.”
