Most talk of a natural gas boom in southern West Virginia usually defers to the yet-untapped Rogersville Shale miles beneath the tri-state region.
While the vast majority of wells are still plunged into the northern Utica and Marcellus Shales, currently a more cost-effective venture with plenty of reserves left, streams of the multibillion industry still pull south into Cabell County by way of Cenergy LLC, a Milton-based general contractor designing, manufacturing and constructing compression and regulation stations for gas players nationwide.
MarkWest, a wholly-owned subsidiary of MPLX, has expanded its operations in West Virginia and continues to grow, with more than $200 million in construction underway in Doddridge County and more than $100 million in planned upgrades in Marshall County.
The company currently has seven separate processing plants in two states, one being de-ethanization, and an ethane fractionation plant has been added at the Sherwood location along U.S. 50 in Doddridge County, Operations General Manager Jeff Randolph said.
