MarkWest Energy Partners Expands Natural Gas Production in West Virginia

(Success story from West Virginia Department of Commerce)

By the end of 2014, MarkWest Energy Partners, L.P. plans to have an extraordinary 2.3 billion cubic feet per day of natural gas processing capacity in West Virginia. The company’s ability to transport, process, fractionate and market natural gas and natural gas liquids make MarkWest a key player in the development of the Marcellus Shale and Utica Shale plays.


As a midstream operation, MarkWest serves customers in the exploration and production field, like Antero Resources or Chesapeake Energy, that drill the wells and own the resources. With operations in eight states in addition to West Virginia, MarkWest transports, processes and adds value to the raw natural gas product and liquids in the energy delivery chain between the well and the customer.


The following is an interview with Frank M. Semple, MarkWest’s chairman, president and chief executive officer regarding the company’s operations in the Mountain State.
