Ethane from Shale to be Transported through Summit Co.

A liquid extracted from shale in eastern Ohio and western Pennsylvania soon will flow through the Akron area en route to Canada for processing.

Pennsylvania-based Sunoco Logistics Partners LP is preparing to begin pipeline shipments next month of ethane, a liquid found with natural gas in the Utica and Marcellus shales.

The ethane will be transported 350 miles from Houston, Pa., to Sarnia, Ontario, via the Mariner West Pipeline, which will be able to handle up to 50,000 barrels per day.
