Antero Midstream had a combined 273 miles of low- and high-pressure pipeline in the Marcellus and Utica Shales by the end of 2015 and 304 miles by the end of 2016. Our midstream infrastructure includes a network of 8-, 12-, 16- and 20-inch gathering pipelines that collect raw natural gas from Antero Resources’ operations. 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 compression assets currently only service Antero Resources’ operations in the Marcellus Shale area, but there is the potential to expand our compression capacity to service the Utica Shale area in 2015. In 2015, Antero Midstream gathered approximately 1,124 MMcf/d of natural gas through our low-pressure lines, 1,195 MMcf/d of natural gas through high-pressure lines and 4,000 Bbl/d of condensate through our condensate gathering lines under fee-based contracts with Antero Resources.
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.
