As mentioned many times on this blog, construction of natural gas pipelines throughout the Marcellus Shale regions of Pennsylvania is moving ahead at record pace. Transporting natural gas produced in counties such as Bradford, Lycoming, Susquehanna, Wyoming, Tioga and elsewhere to markets and ports on the Coast is top priority for natural gas drilling companies. With the rapid growth has come concerns. Today reports note that environmental groups are upset with the DEP over construction of a pipeline compressor station in Susquehanna Count. A public hearing was held in August however DEP never issued a report on the comments. The compressor station was built without the comments. Environmental groups are claiming foul. The pipeline folks deny any violation and are moving forward with construction.
