Mountaineer to proceed with natural gas storage project in Ohio

Mountaineer NGL Storage, LLC will move forward with development of its natural gas storage project near Clarington, Ohio after an open season resulted in requests for more than three times the initial planned capacity of the facility, reports the Akron Beacon Journal. The Denver-based company said the project is expected to break ground in early 2017 and be in service in early 2018. Mountaineer plans to offer up to 2 million barrels of initial storage capacity with the facility, which will store ethane, propane, butane and y-grade products for natural gas processors, producers, markets and commodity traders focused on the Marcellus and Utica shale plays.
