Sunoco Logistics lets contract for Mariner East 2 NGL pipeline

Sunoco Logistics Partners LP, Philadelphia, has let a construction management contract to Fluor Corp., Irving, Tex., for the Mariner East 2 natural gas liquids pipeline project.

Mariner East 2 is the second phase of the company’s broader plan to transport 275,000 b/d of various NGLs (propane, butane, and ethane) from processing and fractionation complexes in the Marcellus and Utica shale areas in western Pennsylvania, West Virginia, and eastern Ohio to Sunoco Logistics’ 800-acre Marcus Hook Industrial Complex (MHIC) in southeastern Pennsylvania.

Fluor will manage the construction of new terminal facilities to store, chill, process, and distribute the NGLs at the complex.

The contract’s value was undisclosed.

In late 2014, Sunoco Logistics reported receiving sufficient binding commitments from shippers to move ahead with the $2.5-billion investment in the Mariner East 2 NGL pipeline project (OGJ Online, Nov. 7, 2014).
