Sunoco Logistics Partners L.P. (NYSE: SXL) today announced that it will commence a binding Open Season for Project Mariner West. Mariner West is a pipeline project developed
jointly by Sunoco Logistics and MarkWest Liberty Midstream & Resources, LLC, a partnership between MarkWest Energy Partners, L.P. (NYSE: MWE) and The Energy & Minerals Group to deliver ethane from the liquid-rich Marcellus Shale processing and fractionation areas in Western Pennsylvania to Marysville, Michigan and the international border near Marysville, Michigan. The project is anticipated to have an initial capacity to transport up to 50,000 barrels per day of ethane and can be scaled to support higher volumes as needed. Mariner West is scheduled to be operational by July 2013 to meet the expectations of the ethane producers and consumers.

Together with Mariner East, a previously announced Sunoco Logistics/MarkWest Liberty pipeline and marine project developed to transport ethane produced in the Marcellus to the US Gulf Coast, these projects provide Marcellus producers with a comprehensive ethane takeaway solution for the Marcellus Shale basin.

Ethane is to be provided by the Markwest Houston Gas Processing Center

The Open Season will commence on July 21, 2011 and will end August 22, 2011. Priority service will be available to shippers making long-term volume commitments during the Open Season. The Notice of Open Season will be available on the Sunoco Logistics website at
