Pennant to build Ohio Utica shale NGL pipeline

Pennant Midstream LLC is building a 12-in. OD, 38-mile NGL pipeline connecting the Hickory Bend cryogenic gas processing plant in New Middletown, Ohio, to M3 Midstream LLC’s Utica East Ohio (UEO) Kensington gathering, processing, and fractionation complex in Columbiana County, Ohio. The pipeline will have an initial capacity of 90,000 b/d.

Pennant expects the line to enter service in July 2014. It said initial NGL delivered to the UEO Kensington complex would be moved by existing infrastructure to the fractionator at the UEO Harrison Hub in Harrison County, Ohio, offering producers in the northern Utica shale improved access to wet gas gathering and processing, as well as residue gas and NGL takeaway.

UEO began operating 45,000 b/d of fractionation in Harrison County in July and plans to expand this to 135,000 b/d (OGJ Online, July 29, 2013).

The pipeline will cost about $60 million. NiSource Midstream Services LLC operates Pennant Midstream, which it jointly owns with Harvest Pipeline (an affiliate of Hilcorp Energy Co.).
