The Adelphia Gateway project will convert the remaining 50 miles of an existing 84-mile pipeline in southeastern Pennsylvania from oil to natural gas. The northern 34 miles of the pipeline — extending from western Bucks County to Martins Creek Terminal in Northampton County — were converted to deliver natural gas in 1996. Since existing infrastructure is being used, there will be limited construction and minimal environmental impacts.
Adelphia Gateway – Natural Gas for the Greater Philadelphia Region
The 18-inch polycoated seamless steel Adelphia Gateway pipeline traverses portions of Delaware, Chester, Montgomery, Bucks and Northampton counties. When in service, this pipeline conversion will give customers in the greater Philadelphia area a much-needed new, competitively-priced source of natural gas.
Adelphia Gateway intends to have delivery interconnects with local distribution companies (LDCs) and other industrial end users, such as natural gas-powered electric generation facilities, in various locations along the pipeline route. Ensuring additional supply options for customers will lower overall costs for natural gas in the area and have a positive economic impact in the region.
