Finish date pushed back for gas plant in Marshall County
NATRIUM, W.Va. -- Construction of a $500 million natural gas processing plant in West Virginia is running months behind schedule.
The plant in Natium, in the 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 likely will 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.
