Correction

In a story published July 1, “Appalachian Basin Lacks Adequate NGL Storage, Pipelines For Demand, More Crackers” (see Shale Daily,June 30), NGI’s Shale Daily incorrectly stated that Sunoco Logistics Partners LP’s Mariner East 1 natural gas liquids pipeline could eventually be converted to carry natural gas if an expansion pipeline is built. Senior Vice President for Business Development Joseph Colella said that if the Mariner East 2X pipeline is built, the Mariner East 1 pipeline currently in service could be converted to natural gasoline or become a bidirectional line for refined products, such as gasoline, diesel or jet fuel, for example. All three Mariner East pipelines would have a combined natural gas liquids capacity of up to 745,000 b/d, and could not be scaled higher, as the article originally said. NGI regrets the errors.
