MarkWest JV to build Utica natural gas gathering system

MarkWest Utica EMG LLC, a joint venture of MarkWest Energy Partners LP and Energy & Minerals Group, signed a letter of intent with Gulfport Energy Corp. to provide gathering, processing, fractionation, and marketing services in the liquids-rich southern corridor of the Utica shale.

MarkWest Utica will develop a natural gas gathering system with Gulfport and other producers, primarily in Harrison, Guernsey, and Belmont counties in Ohio. The companies expect the gathering system to come online later this year.

MarkWest Utica will process the gas at its 200-MMcfd Harrison County processing complex, expected to enter service mid-2013, and will provide NGL fractionation and marketing services at the Harrison County fractionator, where NGL purity products will be marketed by truck, rail, and pipeline.

MarkWest last month announced two new processing plants in Harrison and Monroe counties and the 100,000 b/d fractionation, storage, and marketing facility in Harrison County (OGJ Online, Feb. 1, 2012).

NiSource Gas Transmission & Storage’s Midstream Services last week announced plans to build a roughly 90-mile, large-diameter natural gas gathering system extending through Ohio’s Columbiana, Carroll, Jefferson, Harrison, Belmont, and Monroe counties (OGJ Online, Mar. 2, 2012).
