Gathering & Compression
Antero Midstream has approximately 376,000 gross acres in the Marcellus shale dedicated for Antero Resources gathering and compression as of December 31, 2016. The Marcellus Shale is characterized by consistent and predictable geology, high well recoveries relative to drilling and completion costs and significant hydrocarbon resources in place. Based on these attributes, as well as Antero Resources’ drilling results and those publicly released by other operators, the Marcellus Shale offers some of the most attractive single-well rates of return of all North American conventional and unconventional play types.
In 2016, Antero Midstream managed 115 miles of low-pressure pipeline and 98 miles of high-pressure pipeline in the Marcellus Shale. By year-end 2017, we expect to have expanded our Marcellus gathering system to 243 miles, and to have grown our Marcellus compression capacity to 1,505 MMcf/d.
- Areas of Operation: Doddridge, Harrison, Ritchie, and Tyler counties.
- 115 miles of low-pressure pipeline by year-end 2016.
- 98 miles of high-pressure pipeline by year-end 2016.
- 1,015 MMcf/d compression capacity by year-end 2016.
