Delaware County Council announced Wednesday that the
county’s Industrial Development Authority has selected IHS Global Inc. to study
the potential uses for Sunoco Inc.’s Marcus Hook refinery.
The Industrial Development Authority is a division of the DelawareCountyCommerceCenter.
CommerceCenter Director J.
Patrick Killian said the IDA has directed company officials to come up with
five or six potential future uses of the site, including potential links to the
Marcellus Shale. The company will report back to the IDA by early June.
Council initially announced that it directed the IDA to work
on this process back in March.
