The goal of every midstream propane business is ensuring its customers—and by extension, end users like homeowners, farms and businesses—have a reliable product source. When a midstream business recognizes a potential gap in supply, or a need for increased storage based on regional needs, the most logical solution is often constructing a greenfield propane terminal at a crucial strategic location.
What does it take to design, engineer and construct a propane terminal? Although it may be easy to view it merely as a basic storage, receiving and shipping facility, that’s too simplistic. Rather, it makes more sense to view a terminal as an intricate system designed to maximize efficiency and safety—of the terminal itself, anyone who comes in contact with it and the surrounding community.
