Enterprise Products Partners’ refined products storage facility in Port Arthur, Texas, which was built to support the expansion of a nearby refinery, has commenced commercial operations and received its first deliveries. The new tank farm serves as the sole distribution point for output from the refinery as part of a 15-year throughput and volume dedication agreement. Enterprise’s storage facility, which represents an investment of approximately $330 million, features 20 storage tanks with 5.4 million barrels of capacity for gasoline, diesel and jet fuel. In addition, five pipelines transport the various products from the refinery to the storage site.
