Summit Midstream To Develop Utica Pipeline

Posted on

Summit Midstream Partners LLC has reached an agreement with XTO Energy Inc. to develop and operate a new natural gas gathering system servicing XTO’s natural gas production from Belmont and Monroe counties in southeastern Ohio. The gathering system will be owned and developed by a new indirect subsidiary of Summit Investments, Summit Midstream Utica LLC. 
  Summit Utica will gather, compress, and deliver natural gas produced by XTO into Regency Energy Partners LP’s 2.1 Bcf/d high-pressure Utica Ohio River Trunkline project, which is currently under construction, and other downstream delivery points. Summit Utica will consist of over 115 miles of gathering pipeline with four natural gas compressor stations and will have an initial design capacity of 500 MMcf/d. The development of the Summit Utica gathering system is currently underway and first flows to Regency Utica Ohio River are expected in the second half of 2015.
