July 8, 2011 By    

Inergy L.P. plans to expand its West Coast natural gas liquids storage and rail facilities located near Bakersfield, Calif., the company said. Inergy said it would construct 78,000 barrels of additional natural gas liquids storage capacity, expand its rail loading facilities to 30 spots and increase railcar storage capacity to 350 cars. Inergy expects to place the expansion project into service during the second quarter of 2012. The West Coast expansion project is supported by a seven-year throughput agreement with Occidental of Elk Hills. Inergy’s West Coast business consists of a full-service array of natural gas liquids marketing, storage, transportation and logistics capabilities serving producers, refiners and retail and wholesale propane customers in the western United States. The operations currently consist of 10,000 barrels per day of fractionation capacity; 8,500 barrels per day of butane isomerization capacity; 24 million gallons of LP gas storage capacity; and a transport fleet of 75 units.
