The NGL will be processed in a 24,400 tonne/day fractionation and treatment train to produce ethane, liquefied propane and butane, and pentane and heavier hydrocarbons. The project includes four 83,600 cu m LPG storage tanks, one 76,000 cu m pentane storage tank, and a two-berth extension to the export jetty.
