This is a major milestone and victory. According to Natural Gas Intelligence (see this story), analysts estimate Phase 1A will flow up to 211 million cubic feet per day (MMcf/d) of natural gas. That’s 211 MMcf/d of Utica/Marcellus gas finding its way to new markets, which will no doubt have an impact on the price drillers get for their gas. When Phase 1B comes online later this year, that number zooms up to 1.35 billion cubic feet per day (Bcf/d). Eventually, when the full 713-mile project is online in 2018, some 3.25 Bcf/d will flow through it. Here’s the great news announcement that the first leg of this vital project is now flowing our gas through it…
