According to a press release on the company’s website, INEOS’ first shale gas-based ethane shipment from the US arrived in Europe today. The company will use the imported ethane for its cracker in Rafnes, Norway. This is the first shipment of US ethane to Europe. The carrier carrying 27,500 cubic meters of ethane gas had been shipped out of the US on March 9.

The company has built the two largest ethane gas storage tanks in Europe at Rafnes in Norway and Grangemouth in Scotland in order to receive ethane gas. INEOS reported that they are planning to begin shipments for its Grangemouth complex by the end of this year.
