Pennsylvania has seen a boom in natural gas pipeline construction. Over the past five years pipelines have been built throughout Northeast and Central Pennsylvania. Where new pipelines will be located has now become an issue of controversy. A task force created through the Governor’s office has made recommendations that call for new pipelines being located in current pipeline easements and right-of-ways if possible. Officials are also calling for safer construction practices. It is known that some pipeline construction firms X-ray each and every weld holding pipes together. Other companies either x-ray random welds or no welds at all!! Because there are few regulations governing construction of gathering pipelines in rural areas, officials have become more concerned with location and safety measures.
