The $375 million Hickory Bend cryogenic processing plants at New Middletown in Mahoning County began operations on Dec. 31, Pennant Midstream announced Monday.
“We are excited to announce this milestone,” said Chad Zamarin, chief operating officer of NiSource Midstream Services and president of Pennant Midstream. “As producers bring wells online and are able to flow gas to the facility, Hickory Bend will be capable of processing up to 200 million cubic feet per day. This achievement contributes to increased shale production in the Appalachian Basin and is not only critical to unlocking the potential of the Utica shale play in Ohio, it is furthering economic development in the Mahoning Valley.”
NiSource Midstream Services LLC operates Pennant Midstream, which is jointly owned by Harvest Pipeline (an affiliate of Hilcorp Energy Co.) and NiSource Midstream Services (part of the Columbia Pipeline Group).
