Locally-Based Industry Collaboration with Enterprise Products Partners L.P.
When you’re looking for a pre-commissioning cleaning services provider, you want someone you can trust to get the job done right. This is why B&W Energy Services has worked to develop long-standing relationships with industry partners locally and abroad. One of these valued relationships includes Enterprise Products Partners L.P., and we are pleased to support their isobutane dehydrogenation (iBDH) project in Mont Belvieu, Texas.
In 2017, we supported a large pre-commissioning scope for Enterprise Products on their major PDH plant expansion in Mont Belvieu. Their new iBDH plant will be capable of producing 425,000 tons of isobutylene per year. From the early stages of the plant, isobutylene serves as a feedstock for lubricants, rubber products and alkylate for gasoline blendstock, as well as methyl tertiary-butyl ether (MTBE) for export. This year, B&W Energy Services is supporting Enterprise’s OSBL interconnecting scope for the new unit by providing engineered air blowing and pigging services.
In working with Enterprise to develop this project, we are leveraging their extensive integrated midstream network to help them turn a plentiful, cost-advantaged natural gas liquid into a higher-valued product. This project will continue to further Enterprise’s mission, which is to capitalize on expected demand growth for natural gas, NGLs, crude oil and petrochemical and refined products, and to maintain a diversified portfolio of midstream energy assets. Our collaboration on their iBDH plant affords B&W the opportunity to support developments close to the community we call home.
