NiSource Gas Transmission & Storage (NGT&S) and MarkWest Liberty Midstream & Resources, L.L.C., and The Energy & Minerals Group, have begun operations of jointly developed natural gas gathering, processing, and transmission projects in Majorsville, WV.
The complex is the first integrated gathering and processing system serving Marcellus production in northern West Virginia and augments the midstream infrastructure that NMS and MarkWest Liberty independently operate in southwest Pennsylvania. The gathering and processing facilities are fully contracted and will serve various producers.
Construction will begin on a pipeline to deliver residue gas to the Texas Eastern Windridge compressor that will provide significant additional outlet capacity to eastern markets. A January in-service date is planned.
