Power Plant Fueled by Marcellus Shale Gas Approved for Lawrence County

LS Power Development LLC, a New Jersey based company, received site approval this week to build a power plant estimated to cost $750 million in Lawrence County, Pennsylvania, the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports. The plant would be powered by Marcellus shale gas. The company still needs state and federal permits, but construction could begin early next year and the plant could generate electricity by 2016. Tennessee Gas Pipeline Company, L.L.C., a subsidiary of Kinder Morgan Energy Partners, owns and operates the gas pipelines that would supply the plant.
