Local Ethane, Natural Gas Making Way to Gulf Coast

MarkWest pipes 400K barrels a day to south

November 12, 2013

WHEELING — Up to 400,000 barrels of Marcellus and Utica shale ethane, propane and butane will head south each day by 2016 because of pipeline agreements between MarkWest Energy and Kinder Morgan In....

troll: another aspect of this is the huge new demand for pipe, pumps and all sorts of other US made machinery. I just bought some shares of SLCA: the major supplier of sand for fracking. Demand is booming. The gas discoveries are having manifold positive effects on the US economy in addition to the prospect of exports.

wonderloon, reminds you of C8 because there’s no connection between C8 and fraCking other than they both contain the letter C, or reminds you of C8 because nobody 8 fraCking fluid but you 8 everything you C? LOL

dying, the article is wrong in that regard. Hard to believe, I know. The ethane will be shipped elsewhere, or turned into ethylene there and shipped elsewhere. But you get the gist, I hope.

WWU “When you dilute the Drain Cleaner with Lots and Lots of water the concentration level goes down.”

The same exact thing applies to spills of fracking flowback. Figuratively speacking. So you do get it, you just don’t get it.

mikeyd, so you’d rather see billions of gallons of liquid waste disposed of in solid waste landfills than in deep injection liquid waste disposal wells?

Stick to whatever it is you actually know about. Whatever that is. Just a suggestion. LOL

WVUGEO “"drain cleaner" doesn't glow in the dark or, through genetic damage, inflict cancer on children not yet conceived”

Fracking flowback doesn’t glow in the dark, either. And we're STILL waiting for that SINGLE documented case of fracking-caused genetic damage to ANYONE here. yawn...

Are you sure you’re really a WVU GEO? Because WVU needs to take a hard look at their GEO curriculum... LOL

"This project will provide consumers on the Gulf Coast with access to a new source of natural gas liquids from the Utica and the Marcellus shale resource plays,"

How does this help with our trade deficit?

ok,speaking of sounding dumb this ain't just saltwater.i would rather see this stuff in the landfill[which would filter out the chemicals before heading to our water treatment plants]than to be disposed of close to the river.you need some distance between the two.

WWU “But you'll let a Hazardous material within a 1 mile upstream waterway of a populated area, Move it downstream.”

That’s what they said in Pittsburgh. And then Weirton. And then Steubenville. And now Warwood. Next thing you know, the loons will want Green Hunter to barge that flowback all the way south of Parkersburg to dispose of it.

Oh, that’s what they’ll be doing? Well, we can’t have that, either. Because this stuff is just too toxic to have near the river.

Now, where was that bottle of drain cleaner I was just about to flush down my toilet... Derrrrr.......

mikeyd “troll,so instead of dumping it at our water treatment plant it could have gone to the landfill.”

Now you’re sounding as dumb as GEO. No, I never said the fracking flowback Green Hunter will be transporting instead of dumping into the river could go to the landfill. duh... If you’d prefer it go through the sewage treatment plant and straight into the river, though, keep up the screeching and babbling.

WVUGEO “frack wastes blah blah radiation alarms at landfills yadda yadda gamma radiation rabble rabble rabble...”

GEO, once again you’re spreading disinformation. Fearmongering. Because you have nothing else. This discussion has NOTHING to do with solid waste or drill cuttings. But you sure love riling up the low-information crowd with that sciency-sounding nonsense, don’t you. But when dishonesty is all you have, guess you have to go with that.

yawn........

mikeyd: Speaking of landfills, is everyone aware that frack wastes have triggered radiation alarms at landfills where they've tried to dump the wastes many times over the recent years? See, for only one out of many examples, from the April 24, 2013, edition of Forbes Magazine: "'Fracking Truck Sets Off Radiation Alarm At Landfill'; A truck carrying drill cuttings from a hydraulic fracturing pad in the Marcellus Shale was rejected by a Pennsylvania landfill Friday after it set off a radiation alarm, according to published reports. The truck was emitting gamma radiation from radium 226 at almost ten times the level permitted at the landfill".

WWU, if Green Hunter doesn't barge away all that fracking fluid, guess where it's going? Ask your sewage treatment plant where they put all that waste water. And ask them how effective chemical treatment is on fracking flowback solutes. Have a big drink of water first, though, so you have something in your stomach to spew.

Further, Coal Ash can be used as a raw material in the making of Portland-type cement, replacing the clay, etc., and can be added to cement as an aggregate, to make a high performance concrete. The Reagan Building, in DC, home of the US EPA, is made of concrete filled with a high percentage of Coal Ash.

WWUthinking: Coal Ash could well be a "buy" product. It is, among other things, a viable source of Aluminum ore. China's Shenhua, the largest Coal mining company in the world, now has an Aluminum smelter up an running that uses Coal Ash as the ore. The US currently imports all of it's virgin Aluminum ore. Scientists at the USDOE's Oak Ridge National Laboratory, in their report "Economic Metal Recovery from Fly Ash' delivered in 1981 at the "Symposium on Resource Recovery and Environmental Issues of Industrial Solid Wastes", said that if we started treating Coal Ash as an ore of Aluminum, we could stop all Aluminum ore imports.
