Howard Energy Partners purchases Javelina plant

March 8, 2021 By    

San Antonio-based Howard Energy Partners closed on an agreement with a subsidiary of MPLX to purchase the Javelina Facility in Corpus Christi, Texas.

Javelina is a treating and fractionation plant that extracts olefins, hydrogen and natural gas liquids from the gas streams produced by local refineries, creating purity products that are 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.

“The Javelina facility is a multi-generational asset linked to stable, demand-driven refinery activity, further supporting our long-term growth strategy and diversification into new services and markets,” says Howard Energy Chairman and CEO Mike Howard.

Howard Energy Partners is an independent midstream energy company, owning and operating natural gas and crude oil gathering and transportation pipelines, natural gas processing plants, liquid storage terminals, deep-water dock and terminal facilities, rail, terminal and transloading facilities and other related midstream assets in Texas, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania and Mexico. The company has corporate offices in San Antonio, Houston and Monterrey, Mexico.
