Our look at
OHIO SHALE GAS REFINERIES
IN EASTERN OHIO

Shale gas refinery plant construction continued at a brisk pace in eastern Ohio over top of the western portion of the Utica Shale. While it was originally believed this Utica play would be more abundant in crude oil, it appears in early-2014 this play will primarily be more about 'wet gas' with methane and the associated more valuable gas liquids.
In combination with other gas refineries to their southeast, these plants prepare gas products (methane, propane, butane, pentane, ethane) for transport through gas pipelines running south to the Texas coast, north to Canada, and east to the ocean port near Philadelphia. While only a few have been approved, over a dozen US export licenses were under consideration at the beginning of 2014. Exported gas products typically bring a much higher price from foreign sales, often three or four times as much as the same product being sold domestically in the United States.
