Marcellus play to get gas plant

By OGJ editors
HOUSTON, Dec. 27
-- Magnum Hunter Resources Corp., Houston, announced earlier this month that it will build a 200-MMcfd cryogenic natural gas processing plant to serve production moved on its Eureka Hunter pipeline in northwestern West Virginia. A company spokesman declined to pinpoint the plant’s planned location.

Installation and hook-up of the plant will begin once it is delivered in October 2011. The spokesman also declined to disclose the construction cost or what construction contracting company is in charge of engineering and construction.

Gary C. Evans, Magnum Hunter chairman and chief executive officer, noted that natural gas produced from its 50,000 net acres in the Marcellus shale in northwestern West Virginia and Ohio is “highly liquids rich,” 1,200-1,400 btu.

He said the company intends to drill at least “horizontal Marcellus shale wells in fiscal year 2011.”
