Pipeline company changes route
PITTSBURGH (AP) — An energy company has announced changes to the route of a proposed Pennsylvania natural gas pipeline in response to public complaints.
The Lancaster Intelligencer Journal reported Thursday that Tulsa, Okla.-based Williams Partners LP now plans to avoid the Shenk’s Ferry Wildflower Preserve and Tucquan Glen Nature Preserve in Lancaster County.
Williams spokesman Chris Stockton said the change was a direct result of feedback from county residents.
The proposed 177-mile Central Penn Line South pipeline would transport Marcellus shale natural gas, and must be approved by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission.
