       总部位于达拉斯的Energy Transfer公司周二表示,世界首艘最大的超大型乙烷运输船(Very Large Ethane Carrier,简称VLEC)已经完成装货。该运输船隶属Energy Transfer和卫星石化(美国)公司(Satellite Petrochemical USA Corp.,以下简称卫星石化)不久前宣布成立的合资公司Orbit Gulf Coast NGL Exports(以下简称Orbit)。
 
       作为世界最大的VLEC,“Seri Everest”号于2021年1月17日离开合资公司Orbit新建码头,完成其处女航。Orbit码头位于Energy Transfer公司在德克萨斯州的Nederland码头。 
 
       该船装载了超过91.1万桶乙烷,目的地是卫星石化位于中国江苏省东北部的连云港乙烷裂化装置,这是迄今为止最大的一次乙烷运输。
 
       AIS数据显示,该船目前正在前往巴拿马运河的途中。预计于2021年2月中旬抵达连云港港口。
 
       Orbit在Nederland的出口码头是美国仅有的三个乙烷出口码头之一,包括一个120万桶的乙烷储罐和一个日产约18万桶的乙烷制冷设备。
 
       Energy Transfer公司位于宾夕法尼亚州的Marcus Hook码头也有装卸VLEC的能力。
 
       据Energy Transfer表示,这两个码头的出口量总和占美国水路出口运力的50%以上。
 
       Energy Transfer是其与卫星石化的合资企业Orbit资产的运营商,该资产还包括一条新建的20英寸管道,该管道始于Energy Transfer在德克萨斯州蒙特贝尔维乌的分馏和存储设施,用于向Nederland乙烷出口码头和该地区的国内市场输送乙烷。
 
       联合Orbit,Energy Transfer还完成了在蒙特贝尔维乌向Orbit管道供应乙烷的基础设施建设,以及成功在Nederland将乙烷装载到VLEC上。根据一项长期、以需求为基础的协议,Energy Transfer将为卫星石化提供每天约15万桶的乙烷,并提供存储和营销服务。

World’s Largest VLEC Loaded in Texas. Sets Sail for China
 
Dallas-based Energy Transfer said Tuesday it had loaded the first Very Large Ethane Carrier (VLEC) - the world's largest at that -  under its previously announced joint venture with Satellite Petrochemical USA Corp. called Orbit Gulf Coast NGL Exports.
 
The Seri Everest, the world’s largest VLEC, departed from JV Orbit’s newly constructed export facilities at Energy Transfer’s Nederland Terminal in Nederland, Texas, on Jan. 17, 2021, to complete its maiden voyage.
 
The vessel was loaded with more than 911,000 barrels of ethane destined for Satellite’s Lianyungang ethane cracker in northeastern Jiangsu Province, China, the largest single shipment of ethane to date. 
 
AIS data shows the vessel is currently on its way to the Panama Canal. Its anticipated arrival at Lianyungang Port is mid-February 2021.
 
Orbit’s export terminal at Nederland, one of only three U.S. ethane export terminals, includes a 1.2 million barrel ethane storage tank and an estimated 180,000 barrel per day ethane refrigeration facility.
 
Energy Transfer’s Marcus Hook facility in Pennsylvania is also capable of handling VLECs.
 
According to Energy Transfer, the combination of the two terminals represent over 50 percent of the U.S. waterborne export capacity.
 
Under the joint venture with Satellite, Energy Transfer is the operator of Orbit’s assets, which also include a newly constructed 20-inch pipeline originating at Energy Transfer’s fractionation and storage facilities in Mont Belvieu, Texas, for ethane deliveries to the Nederland export terminal as well as domestic markets in the region. 
 
In association with Orbit, Energy Transfer also completed its build-out of infrastructure at Mont Belvieu to supply ethane to Orbit’s pipeline, and at Nederland to load the ethane onto VLECs. Under separate agreements, Energy Transfer will provide Satellite with approximately 150,000 barrels per day of ethane under a long-term, demand-based agreement, along with storage and marketing services.
