Spring has arrived like a lion in may regions in the Marcellus Shale natural gas drilling territory. However, warmer temperatures are right around the corner and with them will come an increase in natural gas drilling and gas truck traffic activity.
Reports today discuss a new proposed pipeline running from Pennsylvania to the Gulf Coast. The project, announced by Williams Pipeline and a venture capital group, will transport wet gas–like ethane–to the Gulf for processing. The project will cost hundreds of millions of dollars to complete. This is just another sign that natural gas drilling and natural gas spin-off activities will be increasing in the not too distant future. Look for additional drilling rigs to spring up throughout Pennsylvania and employment opportunities to continue to grow.
The Natural gas Drilling Rig and Gas Truck Accident Trial Team at DLP is ready to handle the influx in serious accidents and injured workers and victims which will result from increased drilling. DLP recently resolved a gas truck accident case in a rural county for $14 million. A gs worker injured at a drilling rig site received $400,000. Just two examples of the many cases being handled by DLP.
