11.03.16. Sunoco Logistics Partners has announced that Mariner East 1, the first pipeline in the larger Mariner East system, is now transporting both ethane and propane to the Marcus Hook Industrial Complex, and is approaching full operations as it completes loading of the first waterborne ethane shipment.
With Mariner East 1 up and running, the partnership says the Marcus Hook complex, located on the Pennsylvania bank of the Delaware River, in the northeastern USA, is now positioned as the East Coast hub for processing and storing propane, ethane and other natural gas liquids from shale basins for distribution to local, domestic and international markets.
The 70,000 bpd of ethane and propane capacity for Mariner East 1 is available for both intrastate and interstate service.
