Marcellus, Utica, DJ Basin shale gas pipeline builders updates
Construction to help build a pipeline section to enable Marcellus shale gas producers to reach the Mid-Atlantic and Southeastern U.S. markets is officially underway. Williams Partners announced this week that the greenfield construction portion of the Atlantic Sunrise pipeline project began in Pennsylvania. Along with the pipeline construction process, Williams will also build two natural gas compressor stations.
