FRANKLIN, Tenn.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Eco-Energy (www.eco-energy.com), a leading biofuel and natural gas marketing supply chain company, announces the acquisition of the Stone Mountain gathering pipeline system, Stone Mountain processing facility and the Stone Mountain rail terminal.

The Stone Mountain gathering system is made of up over 600 miles of gathering pipelines that span Kentucky, Tennessee, and Virginia. The system has a design capacity for 60,000 Mcf/d and collects gas from over 800 wells which supply the cryogenic processing facility before interconnecting with the East Tennessee pipeline.

The liquids terminal is designed to handle y-grade, propane and butane and has 24 railcar spots with access to the Norfolk Southern railroad and 3 trucks bays to supply the local market with these premium products.

Eco Energy is looking forward to our partnership with the current producer Magnum Hunter Production (a division of Montage Resources). We have worked hard to align incentives that benefit both companies and we look forward to adding new suppliers to the system as well” stated Brian Simpson, Eco-Energy’s EVP of Development.
