Enterprise Products Partners is extending its ethylene pipeline and logistics system further into South Texas. The Baymark ethylene pipeline will originate in the Bayport area of southeast Harris County and extend approximately 90 miles into Matagorda County. The pipeline is scheduled to begin service in the fourth quarter of 2020.
The Baymark Pipeline will provide access to a high-capacity ethylene storage well Enterprise is repurposing at its Mont Belvieu complex, as well as connectivity to the ethylene export terminal currently under construction at Morgan’s Point. The storage well is expected to be completed in the third quarter of 2019 and will have a capacity of 600 million pounds. The terminal will have the capacity to export approximately 2.2 billion pounds of ethylene per year and is on schedule to begin service in the fourth quarter of 2019.
