In Marcus Hook, We Shale Overcome

Here’s the new motto in Marcus Hook:

We Shale Overcome.

The borough’s shuttered industrial icon, the sprawling Sunoco refinery, will have a future after all, albeit not as a refinery.

Sunoco Logistics yesterday announced plans to go ahead with a plan to convert the refinery to a processing center for Marcellus Shale products, including propane and ethane.

The good news? The refinery will be reborn, and in the process will create 450 construction jobs to convert the facility.

The bad news? All those refinery jobs, nearly 600 people, are not coming back, and the new facility likely will not employ near that many.
