Howard Energy Partners announced Feb. 15 that it has closed on its previously announced agreement with a subsidiary of MPLX LP to purchase the Javelina Facility, located in Corpus Christi, Texas.
Javelina is a treating and fractionation plant that extracts olefins, hydrogen and natural gas liquids (NGLs) from the gas streams produced by local refineries, creating purity products that are then sold to local markets on behalf of its refiner-customers.
Javelina produces a wide range of product streams including hydrogen, ethylene, ethane, propylene, propane, mixed butane and other pentanes+ for use in the energy and petrochemical markets. The facility is connected by pipeline to all of the major refineries in the Corpus Christi area and provides a critical service to help ensure the refineries’ productive capabilities. Additionally, excess capacity at Javelina provides the opportunity for future growth.
