A Washington County plant that will process natural gas taken from the Marcellus Shale formation in Southwest Pennsylvania and Northern West Virginia now is operational.

The facility, a joint venture between natural gas processing company MarkWest Energy Partners LP, of Denver, and Houston-based private equity firm NGP Midstream & Resources LP, can process 30 million cubic feet of natural gas daily.

Last November, MarkWest and Ft. Worth-based natural gas exploration-production company Range Resources Corp., opened a 30-million-cubic-feet-per-day processing plant. Both facilities are located off Route 519, about three miles north of Houston, Washington County.
