US energy firm Phillips 66 is to expand the storage capacity at its 3.2 million bbl capacity Pasadena terminal in Texas US by 300,000 bbl.
The company made the announcement in its Q2 results, released on 31 July. It is adding 80,000 BPD of capacity to the Sweeny to Pasadena Pipeline, to allow the Pasadena terminal to offtake naphtha from its fractionators at its Sweeny Hub in Texas, which makes products including ethane, propane, butane, and natural gasoline from Y-grade NGL feedstock.
Phillips 66 also said that it had completed the expansion of its storage capacity at its natural gas liquids (NGL) storage terminal at Clemens Caverns, from 9 million bbl to 16.5 million bbl. The expansion was carried out as part of a project to add NGL fractionation capacity at the Sweeny Hub.
