From Linda Harris of the Steubenville Herald-Star on Aug. 16:
MarkWest Energy Partners is operating a small temporary natural gas processing plant it built in Harrison County to accommodate one of its gas producers.
MarkWest Chief Operating Officer John Mollenkopf said Arrowhead, a refrigeration gas processing mini-plant located about 15 miles from Cadiz, came online just a few days ago.
It is capable of processing 40 million cubic feet of gas per day until the full-sized plant is done.
"It's an interim plant for one of our producers. They'll bring some of their gas to Arrowhead," he said during a community barbecue the company hosted Aug. 15.
MarkWest is investing more than $500 million in gas processing and fractionation plants in the Cadiz area --- full-sized projects that Mollenkopf said should be up and running very soon.
