Sunoco Logistics Announces Binding Open Season for Project Mariner East 2
PHILADELPHIA -- December 4, 2013
Sunoco Logistics Partners L.P. (NYSE:SXL) today announced that it will
commence a binding Open Season for its Mariner East 2 project. This Open
Season is for a pipeline that will transport natural gas liquids from
processing facilities built in the liquid-rich Marcellus and Utica Shale areas
in Western Pennsylvania, West Virginia and Eastern Ohio to Sunoco Logistics’
Marcus Hook Industrial Complex on the Delaware River, approximately 300 to 400
miles from the production region. The Mariner East 2 pipeline is expected to
be operational in early 2016.
“We are pleased to launch the Open Season for Mariner East 2,” said Michael J.
Hennigan, president and chief executive officer. “We are bullish on the
production growth from the Marcellus and Utica Shales. We are proceeding with
the Open Season as we have received considerable market interest to develop
this project to provide producers with several marketing options for their
expanding production. We believe the market is long NGLs as the supply will
continue to outpace demand. As a result, Mariner East 2 would provide the
highest value option for producers in this region as an export solution on the
East Coast. We will continue to add storage and expand our Marcus Hook complex
to be a world class NGL facility on the East Coast. In addition, the 800-acre
Marcus Hook site is well positioned for further NGL processing.”
The Open Season will commence on December 4, 2013. Subject to the terms of the
Open Season, priority firm service will be available to shippers making
long-term volume commitments during the Open Season. The Notice of Open Season
will be available on the Sunoco Logistics website at
