In January 2014, MarkWest Utica EMG and the Partnership commenced operations of the jointly-owned Hopedale fractionation and marketing complex in Harrison County, Ohio. The complex’s 60,000 Bb/d propane and heavier fractionation plant, associated purity product storage capacity and marketing logistics terminal capabilities are critical midstream assets in the heart of one of the most prospective resource plays in the United States. In conjunction with the startup of the Hopedale complex, MarkWest commenced operations of a pipeline connecting its Marcellus and Utica NGL infrastructure. By integrating two industry-leading midstream systems, MarkWest will be able to effectively expand fractionation services for its Marcellus producers, while simultaneously delivering unrivaled reliability and optionality for producers in the Utica.“We are exceptionally proud to continue expanding our essential midstream services on behalf of producers operating in the Marcellus and Utica,” commented Frank Semple, Chairman, President, and Chief Executive Officer of MarkWest. “The completion of one billion cubic feet of new processing capacity and nearly one-hundred thousand barrels per day of added fractionation services over the last four months is a testament to the extraordinary pace of U.S. energy production occurring in the Northeast shales. MarkWest is committed to creating long-term partnerships, developing unique solutions, and the required infrastructure needed to ensure that our customers remain at the forefront of domestic energy production for decades to come.”
