Ethane ship delivered for Borealis’ US exports
HOUSTON, August 12, 2016 (PCW) -– Shipbuilding firm Navigator Gas said this week it had delivered the first of four ethane/ethylene vessels to the Jiangnan Shipyard in Shanghai. The vessel has been chartered under a 10-year agreement by European chemicals firm Borealis to import US ethane from the Marcus Hook export terminal in Pennsylvania to its cracker in Sweden.
The 37,300 cubic meter Navigator Aurora can transport 20,000 mt of ethane/ethylene and will be the world’s largest vessel of its kind.
Borealis has said it will begin importing US ethane in the fourth quarter of this year. -- Samantha Hartke
