Marabou Superior Pipeline (MSP) has completed a 19,000-lf natural gas pipeline, and has begun natural gas service to the new Arcadia Sand LLC sand mine in Arcadia, Wisconsin, capable of processing up to 310 tons of sand per hour.
This is Marabou's fourth pipeline serving the burgeoning sand mine industry in Wisconsin. Arcadia contracted with MSP in 2014 for the design and construction of the 6-in. SDR9 HDPE pipeline for delivery of up to 53,000 Scfh to its dryer. MSP completed the regulatory and right of way work in 2014 before winter set in, and the construction of the pipeline was completed in April.
Marabou was responsible for the design and construction of the pipeline, the procurement of any necessary right of way and easement agreements, all required regulatory permits and approvals, negotiation of the upstream interconnect and measurement, and is the natural gas supplier to the Arcadia facility under a long-term sales agreement.
MSP was formed in 2010 for the purpose of providing natural gas service to industrial customers through pipelines designed and built to suit each customer's particular requirements; and the construction, acquisition, and operation of midstream oil and gas assets. In addition to its Wisconsin assets, Marabou also owns and operates five gas pipelines in Texas serving asphalt plants and sand mines.
