Blue Racer Executive: $30 Billion in Infrastructure Needed in Marcellus and Utica Shale
Not being able to load ethane onto the ATEX Express because the Blue Racer Natrium plant's connection remains shut down following the pipeline's Monday explosion is only one of the challenges company officials see in the Marcellus and Utica shale.
"In excess of $30 billion worth of infrastructure still needs to be built," Scott Williams, executive vice president and chief commercial officer for Blue Racer, said Thursday during the Marcellus-Utica Midstream Conference in Pittsburgh.
Williams said new pipeline infrastructure leading out of Natrium connects to Sunoco's Mariner West pipeline, which can transport ethane to Ontario, Canada for cracking at the Nova Chemicals Corunna petrochemical facility at Sarnia. In addition to the Natrium plant, Williams said Blue Racer's infrastructure now includes the Berne complex in Monroe County. The company's extensive pipeline network features lines traveling as far north as Cleveland.Read more by clicking here.
