Columbia Midstream Group – Corporate Overview

The Columbia Midstream Group was founded specifically to meet the needs of producers in the Appalachian Basin and is able to leverage its strong relationships and vast experience working within the industry to develop the necessary infrastructure to support the phenomenal growth of the industry as a result of the Marcellus and Utica shale play development. Columbia Midstream’s Hickory Bend Gathering System and Processing Plant in northeastern Ohio were recently placed into service. The project, operating under the name of Pennant, is a joint venture with partner Hilcorp Energy Company’s midstream affiliate Harvest Pipeline. The scope of the Hickory Bend project includes approximately 55 miles of wet gas gathering pipeline facilities in northeastern Ohio and western Pennsylvania, as well as a cryogenic natural gas processing plant currently in operation in Springfield Township in Mahoning County, Ohio. The Majorsville gathering system is a 35-mile wet gas gathering system located in southwestern Pennsylvania and in the northern panhandle of West Virginia, and serves various producers. And the Big Pine gathering system is a 57-mile gathering line extending through the heart of the Marcellus shale region of western Pennsylvania. An expansion of the Big Pine System is also planned. Columbia Midstream has announced plans to construct the East Washington gathering pipeline system to gather and transport natural gas production in North and South Strabane Townships to be delivered to Columbia Gas Transmission line 1570 to serve area production. Columbia Midstream contributes positively to local and looks forward to furthering the safe and responsible development of Pennsylvania’s shale resources.
