EQT Midstream Partners and Range Resources – Appalachia have recently entered into an agreement for the construction of a natural gas header pipeline in Pennsylvania.

Constructing a natural gas header pipeline

Totalling a sum of roughly US$250 million, the pipeline will run for approximately 32 miles and will require the installation of approximately 32 000 hp of compression. The pipeline will support Range Resources’ dry Marcellus and Utica development and will provide over 500 million ft3/d of firm capacity.EQT Midstream Partners plans to complete the project in two phases. Phase one is expected to be in service by 3Q16 and phase two by mid-2017.

Provide cost-effective midstream services to Appalachian Basin producers

Randy Crawford, Chief Operating Officer of EQT Midstream Partners, stated: “Our growing pipeline footprint distinctly positions us to provide cost-effective midstream services to Appalachian Basin producers; and with this project in particular, we are pleased to build upon our relationship with Range Resources. As we continue to expand and extend our pipeline network through organic projects such as the Ohio Valley Connector and the Mountain Valley Pipeline, we are building a premier natural gas hub that offers producers in the Marcellus and Utica access to a variety of demand markets.”
