Work Begins On Equitrans Sunrise Pipeline

October 2011, Vol. 238 No. 10

Precision Pipeline is constructing the 41.5-mile, 24-inch Sunrise pipeline and 2.7 miles of 6-inch pipeline from Wetzel County, WV to Greene County PA, as well as a new compressor station near Jefferson in Greene County for Equitrans L.P.

The Sunrise pipeline system will generally parallel existing Equitrans facilities, thereby reducing its environmental footprint, and is expected to be operational before summer 2012.

“When completed, the pipeline will provide the critical infrastructure necessary to facilitate continued development of Marcellus acreage in northern West Virginia,” said Randy Crawford, senior vice president and president, Midstream, Distribution and Commercial. “The linking of this downstream transportation capacity to NGL processing will provide producers of liquids-rich acreage a comprehensive solution to deliver their gas to market.”
