Kinder Morgan Eyeing Tuscarawas County for Fractionation Plant
March 6, 2013
Kinder Morgan is reportedly eyeing Tuscarawas County for a natural gas processing plant and a fractionation plant. The reports surfaced when EV Energy Partners referenced a “recent announcement” by Kinder Morgan on the two plants. Kinder Morgan has since denied that it made any such announcement. However, other reports revealed that Kinder Morgan was planning to build natural gas processing plants to handle up to 300 million cubic feet of natural gas per day. Industry estimates indicate that there has been $6 billion invested in pipelines in the Utica Shale play to date.
