NATRIUM – High demand for Utica and Marcellus shale ethane, propane, butane and other natural gas liquids is driving Blue Racer Midstream to double the size of its Marshall County processing plant along the Ohio River.
The facility, which recently reopened after it closed in the aftermath of a Sept. 21 fire, will grow its processing capacity from 200 million cubic feet per day to 400 million cubic feet per day. Blue Racer also plans to soon begin shipping NGL via river barge, which company officials said will supplement their current modes of rail, truck and pipeline transportation.
With the expansion set for a spring completion, Blue Racer will process gas for Chesapeake Energy, Total North America, Eclipse Resources, Hess Corp., Consol Energy, EnerVest, Rex Energy and PDC Energy.
