Antero Midstream’s assets consist of gathering pipelines, compression stations, processing and fractionation plants and water handling and treatment infrastructure through which Antero Midstream provides gathering, compression, processing, fractionation and integrated water services to Antero Resources under long-term, fixed-fee service agreements.
Antero Midstream had a combined 307 miles of low- and high-pressure pipeline in the Marcellus and Utica Shales by the end of 2016. Our gathering pipeline infrastructure includes a network of 8-, 12-, 16- and 20-inch pipelines that collect raw natural gas from Antero Resources’ operations. In support of our gathering operations, we had compression capacity of 1,135 MMcf/d. In addition, we have a system of condensate gathering pipelines to collect wellhead condensate associated with Antero Resources’ liquids rich production in the Utica Shale. Our fresh water handling operations, which are based in both the Marcellus and Utica Shales, comprise 286 miles of fresh water pipeline and 36 fresh water impoundments.
In 2016, Antero Midstream gathered approximately 1,403 MMcf/d of natural gas through our low-pressure lines, 1,316 MMcf/d of natural gas through high-pressure lines and 1,000 Bbl/d of condensate through our condensate gathering lines under fee-based contracts with Antero Resources. During this period, we also compressed 741 MMcf/d of natural gas and delivered 123 MBbl/d of freshwater to Antero Resources for its completion operations.
Antero Midstream is committed to operational safety and environmental stewardship. As we strive to protect the natural environment and minimize the impact of our operations, Antero Midstream pipeline is buried underground and identified by marked rights-of-way.
