Enterprise Products Adding NGL Fractionators 7 & 8 at Mont Belvieu

Total Capacity Will Exceed 600,000 b/d at Mont Belvieu and EPD Will Have Capability to Handle 2.4 Bcf in the Eagle Ford

Enterprise Product Partners is the latest of many Eagle Ford midstream companies that are adding infrastructure to handle growing NGL production.
