NATRIUM, W.Va. — Construction of a $500 million natural gas processing plant in West Virginia is running months behind schedule.
The plant in Natium, near Parkersburg, about 100 milwes southwest of Washington, is being built by Virginia-based Dominion Resources.
While a firm finish date has not been set, a representative with a company partnering with Dominion told The Intelligencer of Wheeling it will likely be finished later this spring.
The Marshall County plant is part of a $1.5 billion processing and transportation venture between Dominion and Caiman Energy. It is part of a network that will move gas and liquids out of the Marcellus and Utica shale formations.
The partners say the plant’s location along the Ohio River will make it a focal point for the shale industry.
