The Institute Completed a Study on The Natural Gas Pipeline Infrastructure in NEPA


Northeastern, PA- The Institute's Energy Task Force completed a study on the Natural Gas Pipeline Infrastructure in the Region.


Northeastern and North Central Pennsylvania has become one of the United States’ most prolific natural gas producing regions as a result of the ability to tap into Marcellus Shale formation.


After the natural gas is extracted, it is transported to markets and ultimately end users such as homes, businesses, and industries via a network of interstate pipelines. Interstate pipelines carry natural gas long distances, where systems of smaller diameter pipelines distribute natural gas to customers.


The capacity to transport natural gas from the Marcellus Shale region to markets around the United States is likely to grow in the coming years, enabling natural gas to play an even bigger role in Northeastern Pennsylvania’s economy.
