Jackson, MS – Ergon, Inc., announced today the expansion of its subsidiary facilities and operations within the Appalachian Basin. The expansion will enable Ergon companies to handle increased liquid production as drilling increases throughout the Marcellus and Utica Shale areas.

Ergon’s refinery in Newell, West Virginia; and their terminal facilities in Magnolia and Marietta, Ohio will add additional storage tanks and infrastructure for an increase in overall storage capacity. Construction at these locations is expected to begin during the second quarter of 2012 and be completed first quarter 2013.
