According to a news release from the the company, the additional capacity is needed to meet new commitments from existing customers Chesapeake Energy Corporation, Total Gas & Power North America, Enervest Ltd. and new customer, American Energy - Utica, LLC, an affiliate of American Energy Partners, LP.

The expansion is expected to increase the company's delivery rate by 70% .

The complex will provide gathering, compression and dehydration services for American Energy - Utica. The new long-term agreement includes installation of 50 miles of gathering pipeline and compression services.

The expansion will include the construction of a second processing train at the Leesville, Ohio facility and extension of an existing high-pressure pipeline from Utica East Ohio’s Harrison Hub to Cardinal Gas Services’ Archer Compression Facility in Harrison County. Additional services also will be added at Harrison Hub, including downstream liquids interconnects and expanded propane and butane storage.

“Our investment in this expansion at UEO underscores our belief in the long-term viability of the Utica Shale,” commented Mike Stice, CEO of Access Midstream. “This growth not only significantly increases our capacity but will improve access to downstream liquids markets. ”
