KENSINGTON, Ohio – More than 1,700 construction workers built the now operational $900 million Utica East Ohio natural gas processing complex that spans Harrison, Carroll and Columbiana counties.
Officials will now expand the plant to process more than 1 billion cubic feet of natural gas per day to address the needs of frackers such as Chesapeake Energy, Total North America, Enervest and American Energy Partners.
Chesapeake Energy originally partnered with M3 Midstream to build this plant, which is also known as the UEO midstream facility. However, Chesapeake spun off its processing subsidiary as Access Midstream. EV Energy Partners joins M3 and Access in the ownership group at the eastern Ohio complex.

A recent visit by InSite Consulting represents, according to Highland County Commissioner Shane Wilkin, a “great opportunity” for the entire county.
InSite is a South Carolina company which specializes in economic development, site selection, and real estate services. As a part of a program sponsored by AEP, known as the Community Economic Development Academy (CEDA), counties across the state could choose to have InSite survey locations and offer formal suggestions for development.
After an all-day seminar in Marietta earlier this year, attended by Wilkin and Highland County Board of Commissioners Deputy Clerk Nicole Oberrecht, Highland County opted to participate in the CEDA program. InSite’s subsequent services, according Wilkin, were “on AEP’s nickel,” and that financial aid is something for which he and other officials are “thankful.”
Energy costs are a top company expense and reducing energy costs happens through negotiating power rates and implementing energy efficiency measures. However, addressing the cost of energy is a complex process. Negotiating with utility companies on your own is a risky venture, and the state government provides an important array of loans and tax credits that also can help reduce energy costs through energy efficiency measures.
Please join The Energy Challenge webinar to learn from national energy experts and state of Ohio officials how Ohio companies can address energy costs. David Robinson, the Montrose Group, LLC, will moderate the webinar and outline how Ohio companies can reduce their power purchase cost and access government financing to fund energy conversation efforts.
