HOUSTON, Mar. 24 -- Enbridge Inc. announced Mar. 22 plans to develop an NGL pipeline from the Marcellus shale in southern Pennsylvania and northern West Virginia to the US Midwest. The proposed line would deliver into an existing NGL system in the Chicago area, including the Aux Sable facility, which processes gas from Alliance pipeline, fractionates NGLs from various supply sources, and has spare fractionation capacity.

Enbridge says other NGL markets, including Ontario, Can., could also be accessed from Chicago utilizing the existing system.

Enbridge will develop, construct, own, and operate the planned NGL line. The company is evaluating various routing and market alternatives and anticipates moving forward with an open season in this year’s second quarter.

Buckeye Partners LP and Nova Chemicals Corp. last month signed a memorandum of understanding regarding evaluation and development of a mixed NGL pipeline extending 400 miles from the Marcellus basin in Pennsylvania to the refining and petrochemical complex in the Sarnia-Lambton area of Ontario (OGJ Online, Mar. 11, 2010).
