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.

A small country that is economically dependent on a single export commodity, such as bananas. That is how Free Dictionary defines banana republic. West Virginia doesn’t have any bananas, but we come close to that definition.

For decades we exported coal and timber, but we also had a booming chemical industry and a glass industry. With coal on the decline, our glass and steel industry almost gone and many of our chemical plants closed, natural gas may be our next big export item. But do we want natural gas to become West Virginia’s bananas?



Charleston, W.Va.
– Nearly 1,000 West Virginia oil and gas workers and advocates gathered on the state Capitol steps Tuesday morning to rally in support of the tens of thousands of hard-working men and women who contribute to the state’s oil and gas economy.

Several hundred oil and gas industry executives, workers and supporters met in Charleston on Tuesday, March 21, for a rally on the steps of the state Capitol.

“The work that you do should be celebrated,” said Maribeth Anderson, president of the West Virginia Oil & Natural Gas Association. Anderson said the myth that most of the people who work in the state’s oil and gas industry don’t live in the state is just not true, and members in the crowd shouted out their home counties to prove it.

Both state Senate President Mitch Carmichael, R-Jackson, and House Speaker Tim Armstead, R-Kanawha, addressed the crowd, telling those in attendance the Legislature was doing what it could to help the industry.

“You’re benefiting the people of the world,” Carmichael said. “We need to do more to help you do your job (in employing West Virginians and helping the state economy). We stand with you to make the changes in the policy and the law to help the industry.”
