In collaboration with the joint venture’s partners—Access Midstream, M3 Midstream, and EV Energy Partners—Kleinfelder helped build the largest integrated midstream service complex in Eastern Ohio for processing natural gas and natural gas liquids (NGL) in the Utica Shale. Development of the multi-facility complex requires diverse civil design and environmental permitting services.
At every step in the permitting and design process, Kleinfelder sought to reduce the sensitivity of the design to outside forces, such as permitting authorities, material delivery, and specialty contractors. Team members met frequently with regulatory staff to ensure they had the information necessary to process permit applications and to expedite the review process. As a result, the tight schedule was met.
