Sunoco Logistics plans additional pipeline for Mariner East 2 project

Sunoco Logistics Partners has confirmed it will build two pipelines instead of one across Pennsylvania as part of its Mariner East 2 project, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. The newspaper says the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection’s recent approval of permits for Mariner East 2 “has emboldened more [natural gas] producers to commit to the project, signaling greater interest in building an additional pipeline adjoining the one now under construction.” Sunoco said it is maintaining an open season to allow more shippers of natural-gas liquids to commit to buying capacity on the new pipelines, which will connect the Marcellus and Utica shale plays in Ohio, West Virginia and Pennsylvania with Sunoco’s terminal in Marcus Hook, Pennsylvania.
