Project Mariner East is pipeline project to deliver propane and ethane from the liquid-rich Marcellus Shale areas in Western Pennsylvania to the Marcus Hook facility, where it will be processed, stored, and distributed to various domestic and waterborne markets. The project is anticipated to have an initial capacity to transport approximately 70,000 barrels per day of natural gas liquids and can be scaled to support higher volumes as needed. Mariner East is expected to have the ability to transport propane by the second half of 2014. Mariner East is scheduled to be fully operational to deliver propane and ethane in the first half of 2015.
 
Sunoco Logistics will construct a pipeline from MarkWest Energy Partners L.P.'s Houston, Pennsylvania processing and fractionation complex to an interconnection with an existing Sunoco Logistics pipeline at Delmont, Pennsylvania. The natural gas liquids will then be transported to the Marcus Hook facility where Sunoco Logistics will construct new facilities to process, store, chill, and distribute propane and ethane to local, regional and international markets.
 

Project Mariner East Phase II

Based upon the significant interest it has received from producers, marketers, and industrial consumers for long-term transportation of Marcellus and Utica Shale natural gas liquids to the Marcus Hook facility, Sunoco Logistics is evaluating offering a second Mariner East open season.
