Drillers Will Have to Wait Until January for Processing Plant That Caught on Fire to Restart

From The Intelligencer/Wheeling News-Register:
Marcellus and Utica shale companies depending on the Blue Racer Midstream plant for processing are out of luck until at least January, as the facility remains completely shut down after part of it caught fire Sept. 21.
"Blue Racer's Natrium plant in Marshall County remains in a safe shutdown mode. We are making the repairs needed to restore service," said Blue Racer spokeswoman Casey Nikoloric.
Though Dominion Resources originally developed the Natrium plant and the full-time workers at Natrium are considered Dominion employees, Blue Racer now officially owns the facility as part of a $1.5 billion deal between Dominion and Caiman Energy. 
"The plant will not restart until an emergency siren system is in place and tested in the neighboring community of Kent," said Jim Norvelle, spokesman for Dominion, noting he projects this to occur in January. "We have been talking with our neighbors there about installing the system. We're in the final stages of making that happen."
