Shell Chemicals begins bid round for ethane suppliers

Shell Chemical LP is seeking ethane suppliers for its proposed petrochemical complex in Pennsylvania and will be accepting bids from August 27 to October 4, 2013.

Securing additional ethane supply is one of the key components in determining next steps as part of the ongoing site evaluation process.

If the complex is built, Shell Chemical expects that its upstream affiliate, Shell Western Exploration and Production Inc., would provide a portion of the ethane supply for the proposed petrochemical complex.

Shell Chemical has already secured supply commitments from CNX Gas Company LLC, a subsidiary of CONSOL Energy Inc, Hilcorp Energy Company, Noble Energy Inc., and Seneca Resources Corporation.  

The bid round requires a confidentiality agreement with Shell Chemical, which will then be followed by further information about the proposed project and detailed instructions for bid submission. 

Shell Chemical still has several critical milestones to achieve before making a final investment decision on whether to proceed with construction of this proposed complex.

More information regarding participation in this bid round is available by contacting Anna Zuzich, Commercial Projects Manager, New Business Development at (713) 241-7177.
