New Gas Processing Facilities Slated for Construction
MarkWest Energy Partners says it will expand two cryogenic gas processing complexes in West Virginia.
Denver-based MarkWest says in a news release that it plans to construct two new natural gas processing plants, one at the Sherwood complex in Doddridge County and one at the Mobley complex in Wetzel County.
The Sherwood complex's new plant will have a processing capacity of 200 million cubic feet per day. It will increase the complex's total production capacity to more than 1 billion cubic feet.
The new plant at the Mobley complex also will have a processing capacity of 200 million cubic feet per day. It will increase the complex's total production capacity to 920 million cubic feet.
Both plants are expected to begin operations in 2015.
MarkWest announced the expansions Tuesday. They announced the completion of long-term, fee-based agreements with Antero Resources for the development of an additional cryogenic gas processing plant at the Partnership's Sherwood complex in Doddridge County in late 2013.
