Fresh Water Distribution
Antero Midstream has approximately 702,000 gross acres in the Marcellus and Utica shales dedicated for integrated water services to Antero Resources as of December 31, 2016. Under an initial water services agreement dated September 2015, Antero Midstream provides fresh water delivery services to Antero Resources in support of its completion activities. The increasing fracture stimulation size used by Antero Resources in its development plan has resulted in increasing water volumes required from Antero Midstream under the agreement.
In 2016, Antero Midstream managed 286 miles of fresh water pipeline and 36 fresh water impoundments in the Marcellus and Utica Shales. By year-end 2017, we expect to have expanded our fresh water delivery system to 323 miles of fresh water pipeline and 40 fresh water impoundments.
- Areas of Operation: West Virginia and Ohio.
- 286 miles of fresh water delivery pipeline by year-end 2016.
- 36 fresh water compounds by year-end 2016.
