The company is now evaluating the construction of a new natural gas gathering pipeline, with an interconnection to the Tennessee system, to serve producers in this region.

The company acquired the optioned easement from the Rail-Trail Council of Northeastern Pennsylvania.

The easement extends north from the Tennessee pipeline right-of-way in the town of Union Dale through the towns of Thompson and Lanesboro to the New York state line.

PVR Partners is a limited partnership which owns and manages coal and natural resource properties and related assets, and owns and operates midstream natural gas gathering and processing businesses.
