Consol to export Marcellus ethane through Marcus Hook

Posted: February 15, 2014

Consol Energy Inc. on Thursday announced it will export Marcellus Shale ethane to a European petrochemical producer through Sunoco Logistics' Delaware River port in Marcus Hook.

The agreement with Consol is the second for Ineos Europe AG, part of the Ineos Group, to export ethane from Western Pennsylvania through the Sunoco Logistics Mariner East pipeline, which is scheduled to come on line later this year. Ineos announced plans in 2012 to buy ethane from Range Resources for shipment to its plant in Norway.

Ethane, a derivative of natural gas, is used to manufacture plastics.
