EIA: Natural gas processing capacity soars in Appalachia

A new report from the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) finds natural gas processing capacity in the Appalachian region has grown dramatically over the past several years as energy companies try to keep pace with increasing natural gas production. EIA estimates processing capacity in Kentucky, Ohio, Pennsylvania and West Virginia grew from 1.1 billion cubic feet per day (Bcf/d) to 10.0 Bcf/d between 2010 and 2016. The additional processing capacity has supported growth in natural gas production in those states, increasing from 2.0 Bcf/d in January 2010 to 22.9 Bcf/d in May 2017.
