Some of the gas from fracking in the U.S. may be imported into Canada.
Some shale gas from surrounding U.S. states could be processed in Sarnia-Lambton’s Chemical Valley. A May 19th conference was arranged for discussion about how Chemical Valley players can profit shale gas — by making arrangements with pipeline and fracking companies.
Nova Chemicals already has made arrangements for shale gas feedstocks. Nova has one agreement with a Texas company for supplies from near Cameron, West Virginia, and another agreement with a second Texas company that extracts from shale in Pennsylvania.
Project Mariner West is a pipeline project to bring ethane from fracking around Pennsylvania up to Sarnia-Lambton.
One article also has reported that “Canadian pipeline companies are considering requests from U.S. producers to reverse the flow of their export lines to bring natural gas from the prolific Marcellus shale into Ontario.”
