Harrison County, OH
The Utica East Ohio Midstream, LLC (UEOM) Harrison Hub Fractionation Facility is a midstream facility that receives compressed liquid gas via pipeline that is later separated into different liquid gas products (propane, ethane, butane, C5+, or natural gasoline). These different products are stored in tanks and loaded onto trucks and rail cars. EMH&T’s environmental services for the facility included permitting impacts to over 8.5 acres of wetlands through and Individual 404 and 401 Permit Application to the Ohio EPA and U.S. Army Corp of Engineers to allow for site expansion and onsite mitigation, and performing an archaeology dig after construction activities discovered artifacts within the processing pad footprint. These tasks were completed with little or no impact to the total construction schedule. EMH&T also designed and permitted a pipeline interconnect site adjacent to the Harrison Hub, which is a joint project between UEOM, Sunoco, and Marathon. EMH&T provided the conceptual plans, grading and drainage plans, bid documents, stormwater plan, and erosion and sediment control plan for the interconnect. The pipeline interconnect pad required minor wetland impacts and relocation of over 600 linear feet of a headwater stream. EMH&T negotiated with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and Ohio EPA to allow these impacts to be permitted under a Nationwide Permit with a 401 waiver.
