MarkWest Energy plans to build two new cryogenic processing
plants at its Sherwood complex in Doddridge County, West
Virginia, and its Mobley Complex in Wetzel County, West
Virginia, the company announced this week.
At the Sherwood complex, MarkWest will construct an
additional 200 million cubic feet per day (MMcf/d) processing
plant at the request of Antero Resources.
The new plant is anchored by a long-term, fee-based contract
and will expand total capacity at the Sherwood complex to 1.2
billion cubic feet (Bcf/d) by the second quarter of 2015.
Antero continues to develop its prolific rich-gas acreage
position in northern West Virginia and is the anchor producer
supporting the Sherwood complex.
At the Mobley complex, MarkWest will increase total
processing capacity to 920 MMcf/d with the construction
of an additional 200
million cubic feet/day processing plant at the request of EQT
That new plant is anchored by a long-term, fee-based contract
and is expected to be in service by the second quarter of
The Mobley complex currently consists of three plants with
520 MMcf/d of total processing capacity and during the fourth
quarter of this year, MarkWest will begin operations of a
fourth plant at the complex, increasing capacity to 720
We are very excited to continue developing critical
midstream infrastructure on behalf of Antero and EQT,
said Frank Semple, CEO of MarkWest. The ongoing success
of our producer customers is truly impressive and our
Sherwood and Mobley complexes are two of our premier assets
in the rich-gas areas of the Marcellus Shale.
