Enterprise Products Partners, as of June 1, 2018, is the exclusive provider of residual marine fuel (RMG 380) and marine gas oil (MGO) at its Enterprise Hydrocarbons Terminal (EHT) on the Houston Ship Channel.
RMG 380 and MGO are the primary transportation fuels used by deep-draft vessels that dock at the EHT facility.
“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, chief executive officer of Enterprise’s general partner. “This new service reflects the creativity and commitment of our people as they continue to find new ways to maximize our assets to capitalize on growth opportunities.”
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.
Enterprise Products Partners is one of the largest publicly traded partnerships and a leading North American provider of midstream energy services to producers and consumers of natural gas, NGLs, crude oil
, refined products and petrochemicals.
