Join Together With Demand –Marcellus/Utica Midstream Infrastructure Development: Gas Pipelines

Natural gas production is growing faster in the Marcellus and Utica than any other part of North America. Even with lower prices, Appalachia natural gas production will probably hit record highs in the next few days, and NGL production is into the stratosphere, now more than four times where it was two years ago, growing on average 6% PER MONTH! All of that new production requires lots of new gathering, processing and pipeline infrastructure and consequently midstream construction in the region has been booming.  But building midstream infrastructure in Appalachia doesn’t work the way it does in other high-growth shale plays. The region has lots of huge, legacy natural gas pipelines that are being repurposed, new gas plants and fractionation that must be build, and a paucity of underground salt formations needed for high-volume NGL storage. Today we get further into the details of Marcellus/Utica infrastructure, starting with natural gas pipelines.
