New Construction
  • On-schedule construction of new cryogenic gas processing plant
  • Environmental and building code compliance with local, state, and federal requirements.

As energy companies explore the Utica Shale play in Ohio and become established in the region, critical infrastructure is needed. As energy companies seek to tap into this valuable resource, a new state-of-the-art cryogenic processing plant is now part of the overall solution. 

The first phase of this processing facility is capable of processing up to 200 million cubic feet per day as producers bring wells online and are able to flow gas to the facility. The dry gas will be transported for delivery to homes and business across the region, and the natural-gas liquids will be shipped through a new liquid pipeline for conversion into products such as butane, ethane, and propane, delivering further value to the marketplace. This achievement contributes to increased shale production in the Appalachian Basin.

What We Did

Gannett Fleming’s work began with performing a feasibility study and zoning reconnaissance, then expanded into full site design, roadway investigations, geotechnical investigations for horizontal directional drilling of pipelines, bridge inspections, building permitting assistance and inspection, on-lot sanitary sewer design, and air emissions permitting.

Construction on two future phases also began in 2014; our firm will assist with those projects through 2017.

Key Features

  • Plant will separate dry natural gas from natural-gas liquids 
  • Connects to 55 miles of wet gas gathering pipe facilities.
