MarkWest Energy Partners announced Nov. 7 it has completed long-term, fee-based agreements with Antero Resources to develop an additional cryogenic gas processing plant at the Sherwood complex in Doddridge County.

MarkWest will construct a fifth facility that is expected to begin operating in the third quarter of 2014. Once the newest plant is completed, the Sherwood complex will have 1 billion cubic feet per day, or Bcf/d, of total processing capacity.

The Sherwood complex currently has two plants and is operating near its full capacity. MarkWest has plans to bring a third plant online at the complex, and has plans for a fourth plant there by the second quarter of 2014.

"We are delighted to further expand our strong relationship with Antero and develop additional processing capacity at the Sherwood complex to support their highly successful drilling program," MarkWest chairman, president and chief executive officer Frank Semple said in a news release. "The ability to offer producers fully integrated midstream services throughout northern West Virginia and southwest Pennsylvania is critical to unlocking the abundant rich-gas reserves of the Marcellus Shale."
