The massive natural gas processing plant under construction in Columbiana County is nearly finished.
The Momentum Midstream facility in Hanover Township will likely be online soon, though officials were unable to give an exact date.
It’s the first phase of what is to be a much larger project. The cryogenic plant will freeze the gas, separating out the “wet” components from the rest before shipping it off to market.
“The construction of M3’s UEO Buckeye natural gas processing and fractionation project is continuing on schedule, with the initial phase now in the final stages of construction,” a statement from the company said. “The company is expecting to commission the two facilities and pipeline systems in the near future, which includes an initial phase of 200 MMcf/d of cryogenic processing and associated fractionation.”
