Pennsylvania Debates Gas Gathering Pipeline Regulations

Pennsylvania and Alaska are the only states that rely on the Federal government to regulate natural gas gathering pipeline safety and construction in their states according to part two of the Philadelphia Inquirer’s ongoing investigative series on gas pipeline development. Additionally there is no oversight of pipeline construction in rural areas including Tioga, Susquehanna and Bradford counties. This is so even though gathering pipelines in the Marcellus Shale can be larger than 24 inches in diameter and be pressurized at higher volume than major interstate transmission lines. Harrisburg legislators are only now debating the issue.
