Dominion has reached an agreement with PPG Industries on an option for Dominion to purchase land at PPG’s Natrium, WV site for the construction of a natural gas processing and fractionation facility.
Dominion Transmission, Dominion’s natural gas pipeline and storage subsidiary, plans to process natural gas and separate natural gas liquids at the 56-acre site as part of its previously announced Marcellus 404 project.
Engineering design and project planning for the plant are under way. Financial terms were not disclosed.
The facility is designed to phase in service for processing up to 300,000 Mcf/d of natural gas. Fractionation capacity for up to 38,000 bpd of natural gas liquids would be available.
The Natrium site, in Marshall County about nine miles north of New Martinsville, WV, is close to Dominion’s TL-404 pipeline, an existing transmission line in Ohio and West Virginia that Dominion plans to convert into a wet gas service line. The Natrium site also is close to railroad, pipeline and barging services for marketing natural gas liquids.
