Phoenix Park Energy Marketing LLC (PPEML) has embarked on a strategic initiative to expand the delivery capacity of its Phoenix Park Hull terminal, located in Hull, Texas.

The company signed a procurement and construction contract with 360 Rail Services to further increase the outbound capacity of propane and other products by an additional 40 percent. Since the terminal was acquired by PPEML in 2022, the capacity has doubled, and it became available to customers in the fourth quarter of 2023.

According to Ramesh Harrylal, vice president of operations for PPEML, “This project represents another important milestone to furthering the company’s movement along the value chain by increasing the delivery capacity of the Phoenix Park Hull terminal and the customer experience.”

Harrylal explains that the engineering for the expansion was successfully completed, and the procurement and construction contract was awarded with an aggressive completion schedule for commissioning in October. During this period, daily operations will continue as scheduled to fulfill customers’ needs in a safe and efficient manner as construction activities increase, he adds.

PPEML has collaborated closely with several stakeholders on the project, including railroad companies, energy partners and the city of Daisetta, Texas. The company plans to continue its drive to increase product supply to customers in existing and potential new markets.

Operating under the Phoenix Park brand, PPEML, a wholly owned subsidiary of Phoenix Park Gas Processors Ltd., is engaged in the business of marketing, trading and transporting natural gas liquids in Canada, the U.S. and Mexico.
