EQT Midstream Partners on Thursday said it’s signed an agreement with Range Resources–Appalachia to construct a $250 million natural gas header pipeline in southwest Pennsylvania to support Range’s dry Marcellus and Utica Shale development.
The 32-mile pipeline’s projected capacity is in excess of 500 million cubic feet per day (MMcf/d), and is backed by a long-term firm capacity reservation commitment, according to EQT Midstream.
The master limited partnership midstreamer plans to complete the project in two phases, with phase one expected to be in-service by the third quarter of 2016, and phase two online by mid-year 2017.
The majority of capital investment is expected throughout 2016 and the first half of 2017.
