PINE GROVE, W.Va. — MarkWest Energy’s new natural gas processing plant in Wetzel County has begun operations.

The plant will process 200 million cubic feet of wet Marcellus and Utica shale gas per day. It will separate the gas’ dry methane from ethane, butane, propane and pentane.

Frank Semple, MarkWest chairman, president and CEO, told The Intelligencer and Wheeling News-Register that the plant will allow producers to efficiently develop their Marcellus properties in northern West Virginia.
