Join Together With Demand—MarkWest’s Utica/Marcellus Natural Gas Processing

Fast-rising hydrocarbon production of “wet” natural gas in the eastern Utica and southwestern Marcellus has been creating tremendous opportunities for the small group of midstream firms that saw what was coming—and pounced. Gas processing capacity in the Utica/Marcellus as a whole now tops 7.6 Bcf/d, more than 12 times higher than five years ago. The processing-capacity expansion is continuing, as is the build-out of NGL extraction plants and pipelines, and a broader, well-thought-out plan to integrate all this new infrastructure to allow the region to operate without the luxury of significant NGL storage capacity is finally coming into focus. Today, we continue our look at infrastructure development in the nation’s fastest-growing gas and NGL play.
