The Marcellus Shale is the largest and most profitable natural gas shale in North America. It stretches from New York through Pennsylvania, Ohio, West Virginia and Virginia. It includes a liquid-rich region that is still in the early stages of development that will allow for significant organic growth. The region also offers premium marketing optionality with Central New York Oil & Gas (CNYOG), Dominion, EQT, NiSource Transmission, MarkWest, Mountaineer Gas and Tennessee Gas Pipeline.
The Marcellus is well-matched with Access Midstream's business model and growth opportunities of the existing midstream assets in the Barnett Shale, Mid-Continent region, Haynesville, Eagle Ford, Utica and Niobrara Shales.
Our acreage dedication is comprised of approximately 1,204 miles of gathering pipeline with more than 863 million cubic feet (Mmcf) of daily throughput using more than 94,975 horsepower of compression.
