Shell, Williams Partners launch new midstream joint venture

PENNSYLVANIA, US: Williams Partners LP has agreed to launch a new midstream joint venture with Shell to provide gas gathering and gas processing services for production located in Northwest Pennsylvania. The venture will invest in both wet-gas handling infrastructure and dry gas infrastructure serving Marcellus and Utica Shale wells in the area.

The new venture, Three Rivers Midstream, has signed a long-term fee-based dedicated gathering and processing agreement for Shell’s production in the area, including approximately 275,000 dedicated acres. The joint venture also plans to pursue gathering and processing agreements with other producers in the liquids-rich areas of Northeast Ohio in addition to Northwest Pennsylvania. Three Rivers plans to construct a 200 million cubic feet per day cryogenic gas processing plant and related facilities. The location will be determined at a later date. The initial plant is expected to be placed into service by second quarter 2015.

“This new joint venture builds on our strategy of creating large-scale infrastructure solutions that will provide Shell and other producers with access to the best markets for their natural gas and natural gas liquids, whether they be in the Northeast or the Gulf Coast,” said Alan Armstrong, CEO, Williams Partners’ general partner.

“Similar to our strategy of creating a significant supply hub in the dry gas area of northeast Pennsylvania, Three Rivers will create a major supply hub in northwest Pennsylvania, but with the added benefit of large-scale NGL pipeline infrastructure and expanded market options to support wet-gas production in this area,” added Armstrong.
