Midstream

EQT Midstream provides gathering, transmission and storage services both to EQT Production and to independent third parties. EQT is seizing opportunities created by the Appalachian Basin’s burgeoning production of natural gas and other energy products.

EQT’s gathering system includes approximately 9,450 miles of gathering lines, 1,600 miles of which are FERC-regulated, low-pressure gathering lines owned by EQT Midstream Partners. EQT completed various gathering line expansion projects in 2013 that added approximately 385 MMcf per day of incremental gathering capacity and resulted in year-end Marcellus gathering capacity of 1,500 MMcf per day – 1,150 MMcf per day in Pennsylvania and 350 MMcf per day in West Virginia. To support the ongoing production of natural gas throughout the Marcellus region, EQT plans to add approximately 440 MMcf per day of incremental gathering capacity in 2014 – 120 MMcf per day in Pennsylvania and 320 MMcf per day in West Virginia.

Key Data

  • EQT Midstream’s transmission and storage system includes approximately 900 miles of FERC-regulated interstate pipeline that connects to seven interstate pipelines and multiple distribution companies. The interstate pipeline system includes approximately 700 miles of pipe owned by Equitrans and referred to as the Equitrans transmission and storage system. Equitrans is owned by EQT Midstream Partners. EQT Midstream’s transmission and storage system also includes an approximately 200 mile pipeline referred to as the Allegheny Valley Connector (AVC), which was acquired in 2013.
  • The transmission and storage system is supported by eighteen natural gas storage reservoirs with approximately 660 MMcf per day of peak delivery capability and 47 Bcf of working gas capacity. Fourteen of these reservoirs, representing 400 MMcf per day of peak delivery capability and 32 Bcf of working gas capacity, are owned by EQT Midstream Partners. The AVC facilities include four storage reservoirs owned by EQT and are operated by EQT Midstream Partners.
  • EQT Midstream’s year-end total transmission capacity was 2,700 MMcf per day. During 2014, EQT expects to add an additional 650 BBtu per day of transmission capacity in Pennsylvania, and 100 BBtu per day of capacity in West Virginia.
