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 1,389 miles of gathering pipeline with more than 1,065 million cubic feet (Mmcf/d) of daily throughput using more than 99,905 horsepower of compression.
