First Phase of Utica East Ohio Midstream LLC Project is in Service
From the Daily Jeffersonian:
M3 Midstream LLC President and Chief Executive officer Frank Tsuru announced the first phase of the Utica East Ohio Midstream LLC (UEO) project is in service, receiving rich Utica Shale production, processing natural gas liquids and redelivering residue gas to interstate markets.
This milestone makes UEO, a joint venture owned 49 percent by Access Midstream, 30 percent by M3 and 21 percent by EV Energy Partners, the first fully integrated gathering, processing and fractionation complex to be put into operation in eastern Ohio.
At project start-up, the UEO system includes approximately 63 miles of natural gas and natural-gas liquids gathering lines, a 200-million cubic-feet-per-day cryogenic processing facility located near Kensington in Columbiana County, and a 45,000-barrel-per-day natural gas liquids fractionation, storage and rail facility near Scio in Harrison County.
With the completion of the second and third phases of the project, the UEO system will consist of 800-million cubic-feet-per-day of cryogenic processing, 135,000 barrels-per-day of natural gas liquids fractionation, 870,000 barrels of natural gas liquids storage and a rail facility capable of loading 90 cars-per day with full scalability to increase processing, fractionation and rail loading capacity to almost double the initial amount.
