A Denver-based midstream company has announced plans to build another gas processing facility in Noble County.
MarkWest Energy officials says the company will expand plans for its Seneca processing complex with the construction of a third cryogenic gas processing facility, capable of handling more than 200 million cubic feet per day. The first two plants are scheduled to open later this year, and will support rich-gas production from a number of key producers, including Antero, Gulfport, Rex Energy, Consol Energy, and others.
Frank Semple, President and CEO of MarkWest Energy, said on Friday that the company is ‚Äúexcited to be developing midstream solutions in the Utica Shale for proven operators such as Antero and Gulfport.‚ÄĚ
MarkWest is also developing the Cadiz complex in Harrison County, which just completed its second successful week of gas processing operations near Scio. By mid-2014, MarkWest‚Äôs midstream system in the Utica Shale will consist of more than three-hundred miles of gathering pipeline and five processing facilities which will produce almost 1 billion cubic feet per day and 100,000 barrels per day.
