Sunoco Exporting Marcellus Shale Products On Specially Built Ships

The first export shipment of Marcellus Shale ethane set sail Wednesday afternoon from Sunoco Logistics Partners' Marcus Hook terminal to a petrochemical plant in Norway.

The JS Ineos Intrepid, one of eight 575-foot tankers commissioned by European chemical manufacturer Ineos, was loaded this week with 173,000 barrels of ethane that had been delivered to Marcus Hook from Western Pennsylvania through the Mariner East pipeline, Sunoco spokesman Jeff Shields said.

Ethane, a liquid used in plastics manufacturing, is derived from natural-gas production.

State business and political leaders have promoted the export of ethane as critical to boosting shale-gas development. Ineos and a second European petrochemical company have signed long-term agreements to export Marcellus Shale natural-gas liquids.

Shields said the launching of the first shipment of ethane is "another signal that the Mariner East project has begun to fulfill its promise."  Read more....

WOW! That is a very beautiful ship. Very fitting to ship our high quality materials to buyers. Makes me proud.
All the hard working professionals working in the oil and gas fields should be proud. This is what your hard work has made possible.
God bless you all and keep up the great work. This is just the beginning.

What a shame. We are extracting energy sources and sending them to another country. That works okay until we start to run out as this is not a renewable form of energy. Money talks and our public energy policy is pretty much non existent.

A friend of mine was offered a job on one of these ships but turned it down because its a "No Smoking" vessel, so he is going to continue to collect welfare & disability.

poster 6:47 did you tell your friend he shouldn't be allowed to collect welfare if he was offered a job and wouldn't accept it because he couldn't smoke. What a jerk no wonder unemployment is so high.

702, I think it was more about smoking the crack than cigarettes, but it was his excuse.

People on welfare should NOT be able to buy smokes snuff etc beer wiskey I am tired of working to support their bad habits.

6:47 My guess is you're making that up. You can't collect welfare and disability at the same time. You're inventing a story for mock people on welfare. And NOONE is offered a job on a ship like this; they are extremely hard to get. So stop blowing smoke up our arses.

And 7:02, get with the program.
