The Mercury-Freedom Line starts from the center of the project area, delivering Shenandoah Energy Partners produced gas to near-by interstate pipelines. The Mercury-Freedom line is 100% owned by Shenandoah Energy Partners, allowing us to drive down the production cost and transportation. This allows our company to economically produce gas at lower prices than our peers.
Mercury has filed interconnection requests with final engineering nearing completion; the line once constructed will be capable of delivering 350 Mmcf/d. In addition to delivering gas to sales, Mercury is gathering the rights and permits for an infrastructure backbone of gas collection along with water handling.
At Shenandoah Energy Partners, we produce natural gas more economically and efficiently than our competitors, developing a natural gas and water handling infrastructure, which is 100% owned, operated, and controlled in the area. We are able to recycle water by cleaning wastewater and reusing it. This reduces our overall water consumption.
