Click to EnlargeAs the operator of Blue Racer Midstream, our current efforts are focused on Ohio's Utica Shale, an area poised for substantial production growth. We believe the Utica will become one of the largest liquids shale formations in the country. As of October 2016, Ohio has issued more than 2,000 Utica Shale permits and producers have drilled more than 1,800 wells. Providing the necessary infrastructure to match the increased drilling activity in this emerging area and keep pace with growing production volumes is critical. This is especially true in the rich gas windows, where processing and NGL handling capacity are needed in addition to natural gas gathering systems.
