  Enterprise’s Eighth NGL Fractionator at Mont Belvieu Complex Begins

Business Wire

HOUSTON -- November 19, 2013

Enterprise Products Partners L.P. (NYSE: EPD) today announced that the eighth
natural gas liquids (“NGL”) fractionator at the partnership’s Mont Belvieu,
Texas complex is now operational. The new unit, which has the capability to
fractionate up to 85,000 barrels per day (“BPD”) of NGL, increases total NGL
fractionation capacity at Enterprise’s Mont Belvieu facility to approximately
655,000 BPD. The partnership’s eighth fractionator will accommodate increasing
NGL production from domestic shale plays, including the Eagle Ford in South
Texas, and other basins in the Rocky Mountain and Mid-continent regions.
Rising NGL production from the shale plays continues to provide a low-cost
feedstock advantage for the global petrochemical industry, which currently
favors natural gas-derived feedstocks over more expensive crude oil-based

“Our eighth NGL fractionator is the second unit Enterprise has placed into
service at Mont Belvieu in the last two months, both of which were completed
ahead of schedule and within budget,” said Michael A. Creel, chief executive
officer of Enterprise’s general partner. “In just three years, total NGL
fractionation capacity at the partnership’s Mont Belvieu complex has
increased, from 400,000 BPD to 655,000 BPD, demonstrating our ability to
respond quickly, efficiently and safely to the demand for midstream
infrastructure that meets the country’s evolving energy landscape. System
wide, Enterprise now has more than 1 million BPD of NGL fractionation

Fractionators seven and eight were constructed as part of a joint venture
(“JV”) with Western Gas Partners, LP (NYSE: WES), an affiliate of Anadarko
Petroleum Corporation. Enterprise operates the two new units and owns a 75
percent equity interest in the JV, with Western Gas Partners owning the
remaining 25 percent interest.
