Update on Adelphia Gateway – Converting Oil Pipeline to Flow NatGas

Adelphia Pipeline route – click for larger version

One year ago, in November 2017, MDN shared the exciting news that an old oil pipeline stretching from Northampton County, PA through Bucks, Montgomery, and Chester counties, terminating in Delaware County at Marcus Hook, had been purchased by a subsidiary of New Jersey Resources and will get converted to flow Marcellus natural gas to the greater Philadelphia region (see Oil Pipeline Near Philly to be Converted to Flow Fracked NatGas). The project/pipeline is called the Adelphia Gateway. In January of this year, NJ Resources filed an official application with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) to convert the existing pipeline to flow natural gas, and add various facilities, like meter stations and a compressor station (see Adelphia Gateway Pipeline Near Philly Files with FERC). The compressor station is planned for a residential neighborhood in Bucks County. The neighbors are most definitely not happy.
