MarkWest starts up first Mobley, W.Va., gas plant

MarkWest Energy Partners, Denver, has begun operations at the first of three planned Mobley gas processing plants in Wetzel County, W.Va. The 200-MMcfd plant processes rich-gas production from the Marcellus shale by EQT Corp., Pittsburgh, Magnum Hunter Resources Corp., Houston, and other producers.

The Mobley plant is currently operating at about 60% capacity, says the company, but will continue grow as it handles the drilling continues in the area.

MarkWest expects to complete construction of its second, 120-MMcfd Mobley plant during first-quarter 2013. By fourth-quarter 2013, it will bring online a third, 200-MMcfd plant.

When all plants are operating, the Mobley complex will be able to process about 520 MMcfd in the wet-gas fairway of northern West Virginia. NGLs recovered at Mobley move by MarkWest’s NGL gathering network to the 60,000-b/d Houston fractionator in Washington County, Pa.
