Conemaugh River Lake
Published Feb. 25, 2013
     NiSource Inc. has begun construction of a $150 million pipeline, called the Big Pine Gathering System, in western Pennsylvania.
    The pipeline will provide natural gas producers, including newly drilled Marcellus wells in Pennsylvania and Ohio, a way to get their product to market.
     The company plans to finish installing the 70-mile system in the upcoming months, which includes a proposed crossing of the lake at Conemaugh.
     The finished pipeline will  have an initial capacity of about 425 million cubic feet per day, with connections to the Columbia Gas Transmission pipeline system, a NiSource owned company, as well as those owned by major shippers Texas Eastern Transmission and Dominion Transmission.
