Finish date pushed back for gas plant in W.Va.

Mar. 26, 2013 @ 09:13 AM

NATRIUM, W.Va. (AP) — Construction of a $500 million natural gas processing plant in West Virginia is running months behind schedule.

The plant in Natium in the state’s Northern Panhandle is being constructed 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.
