Antero gaining access to propane pipelines

November 2, 2012 By    

MarkWest Energy Partners recently began operating a gas processing facility and high-pressure gas-gathering system in Harrison and Doddridge counties in West Virginia. Antero Resources is currently flowing about 90 million cubic feet of gas per day (MMcf/d) through the plant from a portion of its horizontal Marcellus wells, which are producing more than 400 MMcf/d of gross operated production in West Virginia.

Antero will have access to MarkWest’s midstream services in the Marcellus Shale, as well as to all of MarkWest’s ongoing propane and ethane pipeline projects.

Also, pending the completion of MarkWest’s current fractionation projects, including the 100,000 barrels per day (Bbl/d) fractionation complex that is being developed in Harrison County, Ohio, MarkWest’s total NGL fractionation capacity serving the Marcellus and Utica shales will be about 275,000 Bbl/d. The fractionation capacity includes nearly 120,000 Bbl/d of propane and heavier NGL fractionation.
