Eureka Midstream was formed in 2009 to support the rapidly expanding midstream needs of high quality producers in the prolific Utica Shale and Marcellus Shale plays in Ohio and West Virginia. The Company currently operates a 200+ mile high-pressure gathering system that is strategically located in the Ohio River Valley in the core areas of the dry gas Utica Shale play and the wet gas window of the southwest Marcellus Shale play.
Eureka Midstream's ability to serve dry and wet gas production with its multi-line system provides substantial operational flexibility. In addition, the system is connected to multiple interstate pipelines and processing plants, providing Eureka Midstream's customers with the ability to select sales destinations from a diverse group of downstream markets. The Company believes that Eureka Midstream's strategically located assets, its high quality, diverse customer base and its relationship with a strong financial sponsor positions the Company as a leading midstream energy company in the Appalachian Basin.
Eureka Midstream's current gathering system consists of over 185 miles of pipeline, constructed primarily out of 20-inch and 16-inch high-pressure steel pipe, with an estimated 2.3 Bcf/d of initial throughput capacity. In addition to the gas gathering system, the Company also operates substantial compression facilities in both West Virginia and Ohio.
