Utica East Ohio Adds Capacity to Natural Gas Processing Plant

A third, 160-foot demethanizer tower was completed January 11th at the Utica East Ohio Kensington Plant in Columbiana County, Ohio.  The plant serves as a collection and compression point for harvested natural gas from the Utica Shale. The tower, which will likely be commissioned within the next three months, separates the natural gas liquids from the shale gas. As production from the Utica shale formation increases an additional tower may be installed to keep up with demand.
