Sunoco Logistic Partners LP is holding a binding open season for a third Mariner East pipeline. The pipeline will deliver Appalachian natural gas liquids (NGL) to Sunoco's Marcus Hook Industrial Complex on the Delaware River south of Philadelphia, USA.

Sunoco said shippers have expressed interest in expanding Mariner East to provide more NGL takeaway capacity from points in eastern Ohio, western Pennsylvania and West Virginia for delivery to Marcus Hook – a former oil refinery that's being repurposed for NGL storage, processing and distribution to local, domestic and international markets.

Sunoco launched the current open season on 10 September.

Sunoco revealed in June that it was considering constructing a third Mariner East pipeline. It would likely follow the 300 mile path of the company's existing Mariner East 1, which runs from Western Pennsylvania to Marcus Hook.

Acquiring land for the project

Sunoco is also moving ahead on acquiring the more than 2500 parcels of land, some by eminent domain, needed to expand its Mariner East II pipeline to carry Marcellus shale gas to Marcus Hook.
