AKRON — A group of companies is planning a $900 million project for processing natural gas and natural gas liquids in eastern Ohio, with some operations expected to begin next year.
The plans announced Tuesday by Chesapeake Energy Corp. include facilities for natural gas gathering, compression, and processing. A facility in Columbiana County would process natural gas extracted by various companies from Ohio’s Utica shale. A separate complex in Harrison County would receive and process natural-gas liquids such as propane and butane extracted from the shale.
