HOUSTON, Feb. 24 -- MarkWest Energy Partners LP, Denver, plans to build a third plant at its Arapaho gas processing complex in western Oklahoma to handle production from the expanding Granite Wash play.
The 60 MMcfd plant will push total capacity of the complex to 220 MMcfd. Completion is due in the third quarter.
Throughput in the company’s Granite Wash operations has reached nearly 120 MMcfd and is expected to continue to increase. MarkWest said it also will expand rich-gas gathering and compression capacity in the area.
