Pipeline Opposed

Environmental Group Attempting to Block Natural Gas Pipeline

WELLSBORO – A Pennsylvania-based environmental group is sending out bulletins seeking public support for its efforts to block a large natural gas pipeline proposed for portions of Tioga, Clinton, Lycoming, Bradford, Susquehanna and Sullivan counties.

Central New York Oil and Gas LLC., a subsidiary of Inergy LP, has applied to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) for certification to build a pipeline named MARC 1, connecting interstate gas transmission pipelines running east-west across the state.

“This large pipeline guarantees ‘development zones’ along its path, and thousands of gas wells with thousands more gathering lines,” said the Williamsport-based Responsible Drilling Alliance. “This project means an end to the Pennsylvania Wilds and Endless Mountains as we know them. Individual property owner’s rights, ecosystems, sustainable tourism revenue and jobs, and the quality of life for those who live in, travel through, and visit this region are at stake.”
