MarkWest Energy Partners (MWE -0.4%) says it is assessing the damage at a natural gas processing plant in Pennsylvania after an apparent lightning strike and is working with customers to reroute some of their gas to another location.

The Houston, Pa., complex consists of three processing plants totaling 355M cf/day of capacity and 98K bbl/day of ethane and other natural gas liquids.

Range Resources (RRC +1.7%) says some of its wells in the area are shut in while the plant is down but expects minimal impact to its Q2 production; RRC maintains Q2 production guidance of 1,065M-1,075M cfe/day.
