[post_content] => Energy Transfer Partners and Satellite Petrochemical USA have agreed to form a joint venture, Orbit Gulf Coast NGL Exports, to build a new export terminal on the US Gulf Coast that will provide ethane for Satellite’s new ethane-fed crackers in Jiangsu province, China.
The work will involve a new ethane pipeline from ETP’s Mont Belvieu fractionators, export facilities, an 800,000-bbl (127,000-m³) refrigerated storage tank and a 175,000-bpd ethane refrigeration unit. ETP will operate the Orbit assets.
It is expected that the new Orbit terminal will be ready for commercial operation in fourth quarter 2020. Ethane will be exported using very large ethane carriers (VLECs), though no announcement has yet been issued about the operator of these ships or where they will be built.
