Energy Transfer’s Mont Belvieu Complex is an integrated liquids storage and fractionation facility. Its eight fractionators heat the mixed NGL stream and separate them through a series of distillation towers. With the latest addition of Frac VIII that was put into service in the third quarter of 2023, Energy Transfer’s total fractionation capacity at Mont Belvieu is now over 1 million barrels per day.

Located 30 miles east of Houston along the US Gulf Coast, the facility has strategic access to multiple NGLs and refined products pipelines including Energy Transfer’s Lone Star Express and Justice pipelines. It is also connected to the Houston Ship Channel trading hub as well as numerous chemical plants, refineries, and fractionators. It sits atop one of the world’s largest underground salt dome formations which can be used for NGL storage.

Energy Transfer’s leading position in natural gas liquids fractionation at Mont Belvieu includes fractionators with state-of-the-art emissions reduction equipment. Ultra-low NOx burners, selective catalytic reduction emission control systems, and Wet Surface Air Coolers reduce the overall emissions from the equipment onsite.
