According to market sources, Austria’s Borealis will import 240,000 tons/year of shale based ethane from the US to provide supplemental supply for its crackers in Europe. In August of 2014, Borealis signed a 10-year agreement with Antero Resources in order to receive ethane from the United States and the first shipment is expected to arrive in Europe by the end of 2016.

Borealis reportedly has two mixed-feed crackers in Europe capable of using ethane, a 625,000 tons/year cracker located in Stenungsund, Sweden and a 400,000 tons/year cracker located in Porvoo, Finland.
