Sunoco Logistics Partners LP (NYSE: SXL) has begun a binding open season for its Mariner East 2 Expansion Project. This open season is for expanded capacity on the Mariner East 2 system which will be able to transport additional volumes of petroleum products, including natural gas liquids and condensate from processing facilities built in the Marcellus and Utica shale areas to Sunoco Logistics’ Marcus Hook Industrial Complex on the Delaware River.
The open season offers service for ethane, propane, butane, C3+, natural gasoline, and condensate depending upon customer interest. Refined product movements will be considered if there is sufficient customer interest. The Mariner East 2 Expansion Project is expected to begin operations as early as 2017.
Subject to the terms of the open season, priority service will be available to shippers making long-term volume commitments during the open season.
