The Atlantic Sunrise natural gas pipeline is officially underway in Pennsylvania, according to PennLive.

Construction recently started for natural gas compressor facilities in Orange Township, Columbia County, and Clinton Township in Wyoming County, signifying all the necessary permits are in place for the pipeline that will connect the Marcellus Shale gas with markets in the Mid-Atlantic and Southeast. Next, Williams Partners plans to start preparing the path for 186 miles of pipeline in eight counties.

The $3 billion project is designed to increase natural gas deliveries by 1.7 billion cubic feet per day and is scheduled to be placed into full service midway through next year.
