Plans suspended for 120-mile gas pipeline through Valley

WEST CHESTER — The developers of a planned 120-mile natural gas pipeline that would tranversed portions of Lycoming, Columbia, Montour and Northumberland counties say the project is being suspended indefinitely.

The proposed Commonwealth Pipeline would carry natural gas from a deposit in the Marcellus Shale in Lycoming County. It would travel through Columbia, Montour, Northumberland, Schuylkill and Berks counties on its way to Chester County.

The groups behind the project have announced on their website that the project is being suspended. No reason is being given, but the group says it will provide updates at a later time. The pipeline was supported by three major partners: Inergy Midstream LP, UGI Energy Services Inc., and WGL Holdings Inc.

The developers had said they hoped to have the pipeline in service by 2015.
