Ron - Any kind of plant is an important part of the infrastructure required to help realize the full value chain for the play. Cryogenic plants are a way to extract natural gas liquids (NGL's) from wet gas streams using turbo-expanders that create very cold temperatures that cause the liquids to condense and drop out of the flow stream. I'm not fully conversant with the process, but I worked the wells that fed a similar plant during my time in the Middle East many years ago.
I hope that your company is successful in their efforts to acquire land and build this plant. Others will surely follow suit.
"If you build it, they will drill"
Thank you for your history in this industry and your willingness to educate us landowners. BTW, the land is earmarked and I believe is the location.
It does seem like the latest area of the Utica play, the northern counties will require midstream facilities also and maybe as many as what is being built in the south. As it progresses towards the infrastructure, I know leasing and drilling will follow, widespread.
There are 133 separate pipeline projects in Eastern Oh. Check out the thread on page two of discussions.
I wish we had plats and surveys of all these pipelines.
Found 2 maps of the Pennant Midstream pipeline on one of the anti's websites.
Very interesting, I'm learning though is that proposed pipelines can change over night. My opinion is that until the permits are in place they can change for many reasons. I believe it is a far cry from proposal and reality, so many factors can change their routes. Trick is to just keep reading and physically inspecting and following pipe laying as they proceed.
I agree. At least this is some solid information though. These pictures came from a file review of the permit application Pennant Midstream submitted to the DEP in Meadville for permit approval. If you follow the route, it runs right through where Hilcorp has most of their current sites built or permitted.
Tyler, this is the first I saw of a complete pipeline drawing relative to Hilcorp. What puzzles me is that Halcon's CEO called every well they poked in WPA "shitty." Something does not definitely add up, and yet Hilcorp has wells up in Mercer and along WPA, but no production reports to speak of. With these drawings, I have to rethink our approach in WPA.
What Twnshp are you saying the separation plant is to be built?
