Ohio Utica Shale

Seven options for closed Sunoco refinery

By Bob Downing Published: June 28, 2012

A consultant reports that the shale boom in the United States is creating reuse options for a closed refinery near Philadelhphia.

IHS says the boom could trigger development options that might otherwise not exist for the Marcus Hook Industrial Complex.

The one-time Sunoco refinery on the Delaware River sotuh of Philadelphia closed last December.

The 780-acre facility once processed 175,000 barrels per day of crude oil into a wide range of petroleum and petrochemical products.

About 500 workers were employed at the refinery.

IHS was hired by Delaware County to explore redevelopment options.

It has outlined seven options, most tied to the processing of natural gas, oil and the so-called wet gases: ethane, butane and propane.
