Marcus Hook Industrial Complex (MHIC) is quickly becoming a world-class natural gas liquids hub to store and transport the energy we use to make everyday products, heat our homes and blend with gasoline. Development and progress at MHIC have been a vital part of the region’s economy, providing jobs for 5,000 individual workers and contributing $7.1 million annually in property taxes.
Energy Transfer has revitalized the Marcus Hook Industrial Complex in Pennsylvania, once a shuttered refinery, into a world-class natural gas liquids (NGLs) hub. This includes new processing units, including an ethane/propane splitter, and ethane and propane chilling and refrigerated storage. Six new tanks have been built since 2013, with approximately 3 million barrels of storage for propane, ethane and butane in support of our Mariner East 1 and Mariner East 2 pipeline systems.
Project Phoenix would continue this investment in Marcus Hook and in Pennsylvania. If approved, new development would increase the facility’s ability to process, store and transport ethane. Construction would generate up to 600 construction jobs, along with an expected 20 operational positions.
Project Phoenix is currently in the review and approval process. The Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) has confirmed that the project has met all applicable air permit application requirements, and a draft plan approval has been issued.
