Intrastate Pipeline Under Construction in West Virginia

Marcellus.com reports that an intrastate pipeline is under construction in northern West Virginia. The Stonewall Gas Gathering pipeline will connect Doddridge and Harrison counties to the Columbia Transmission interstate pipeline that runs through Braxton County, West Virginia. Wisconsin-based Precision Pipeline has been contracted to build the pipeline, which plans to hire approximately half of the necessary employees from local areas. The pipeline will help to fill the need for new infrastructure from gas producing areas in West Virginia to other markets. Charlie Burd, executive director of the Independent Oil and Natural Gas Association of West Virginia, stated that “[c]ustomers and producers are ready and waiting for pipelines that connect gas wells to markets.”
