Eureka Grows Footprint with New Natural Gas Facility in Ohio

Eureka Midstream today announced that it has commenced operations on a new natural gas facility located in Monroe County, Ohio. The new facility, strategically positioned in southeastern Ohio’s Utica Shale, will transport natural gas for Statoil, a Norwegian multi-national oil and gas company with operations in more than 30 countries around the world. The new state-of-the-art facility, equipped with both measurement and dehydrations capabilities, ensures the delivery of high-quality natural gas through Eureka’s high-pressure backbone. Initially equipped to flow 160 MMcfe/d, the new facility is designed to manage as much as 500 MMcfe/d thus enabling additional E&P operators to gain access to the competitive natural gas marketplace.

Chris Akers, President and Chief Operating Officer of Eureka Midstream said, “Eureka’s new natural gas facility is an important step forward as more E&P operators begin to redeploy capital back into the basin. After a lengthy industry downturn, operators are busy seeking safe, efficient and cost-effective solutions to move their natural gas. Eureka’s state-of-the-art system, with a total of 10 interconnects is well-positioned to serve new and existing customers in the Appalachian basin.”

In an effort to either maintain or boost flow rates, Eureka Midstream will introduce compression in 2018. The compression equipment is designed to provide optimized flow rates after wells have been producing for a period of time.

In addition, the Cain Ridge facility is designed and operated with the latest safety features. Each of the components (vessels, pipe, nuts, and bolts) are evaluated on a regular basis to ensure maximum efficiency and safety throughout the system. Remote monitoring sensors are installed throughout the Eureka’s facilities to monitor, adjust, or shut-down the system in times of emergency.

During the construction phase, Eureka Midstream maintained its commitment to the community by employing approximately 110 people including general contractors, engineers, utility personnel, equipment representatives, civil employees, fencing, and inspection personnel. Additionally, Eureka built the facility with innovative and progressive construction practices, providing for minimum impact to the environment.

Melissa Richey, Executive Vice President of engineering and construction said, “Eureka’s state-of-the-art Cain Ridge natural gas facility advances the Company’s mandate along several fronts.  First, we provide a superior service for our new client while continuing to provide services for our rich and lean gas customers in Appalachia. Second, we maintained our commitment to quality and safety. And last but not least, we work hard to support and work with the local communities in which we operate.”
