Down the line

There’s not enough pipeline infrastructure in our region to move all the natural gas coming from fracking in the Marcellus and Utica shale plays to other markets.That’s changing.

Regulatory approval for these interstate projects can be slow. And some of the pipelines face intense opposition along their routes.
