Low prices and higher power demand make permanent rejection a viable option for some NE Ethane producers

Report summary

Recently, Moundsville Power announced a decision to construct a 549 MW power plant which will use a combination of natural gas and ethane as its fuel. Consistent and wide-spread ethane rejection that has occurred during the last several years have resulted in many regions, particularly in the Northeast, burning elevated levels of ethane in the natural gas stream. However, this plant would be the first in the US specifically built with an intention to burn ethane as a fuel.
