New Pipeline Publication Available from Penn State Extension

Date: November 7, 2010

A new publication titled, “Negotiating Pipeline Rights-of-Way in Pennsylvania” is now available free of charge on the Penn State Extension website.

Since 2008, over 2000 Marcellus Shale wells have been drilled in Pennsylvania.  However, many of these wells are not sending gas to market yet because they are not hooked up to pipelines. Penn State Extension has just published a Marcellus Education Fact Sheet titled, “Negotiating Pipeline Rights-of-Ways in Pennsylvania,” to help the public and landowners have a greater understanding of pipelines and related issues.  The publication describes the various types of gas pipelines, when eminent domain applies, who has regulatory oversight, pipeline construction and safety issues, negotiating a right-of-way agreement, and potential impacts on the landowner.  The publication is available under the Infrastructure area of the Penn State Natural Gas website.
