Crestwood/Mountaineer Gathering System Planned

Posted on

Crestwood Midstream Partners has signed an MOU with Mountaineer Keystone LLC, Pittsburgh, PA, to construct a 42-mile, 16-inch diameter natural gas gathering system to serve MK’s Marcellus Shale development program in Northeast West Virginia.
  The Tygart Valley Pipeline is expected to be completed by the fourth quarter 2012 and will interconnect with Columbia Gas Transmission’s WB Pipeline in Randolph County, WV. The pipeline will provide MK and other area producers with access to the growing natural gas markets in the Washington DC and Baltimore, MD areas. Crestwood estimates the TVP project, as currently planned, will cost approximately $70 million. Additionally, Crestwood has announced that it has hired Brian S. Blount as vice president of Crestwood’s newly formed Marcellus Commercial Region.
