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.
Economic benefits for Greater Philadelphia. Expanding natural gas access to southeast Pennsylvania. Manufacturing growth potential, which leads to more jobs. Leveraging existing pipeline infrastructure. Reduced carbon emissions. Safe, environmentally responsible energy transportation. There are many reasons why supporters have stood behind the Adelphia Gateway pipeline — from planning to construction and operation. Here’s what they have to say.
As described in Adelphia Gateway, LLC’s Amendment to Abbreviated Application for Certificate of Public Convenience and Necessity and for Related Authorizations, filed August 31, 2018 (FERC Dkt. No. CP18-46), Adelphia has determined that it can flow on a firm basis 75,000 Dth/d of gas in Zone North A. This capacity is available now for contracting. In addition, Adelphia has available uncontracted firm capacity in its South Zone. Adelphia held an open season for all available firm capacity through May 15, 2019. Any uncontracted firm capacity remaining at the conclusion of the open season will be made available to customers on a first come first served basis until Adelphia’s FERC Gas Tariff becomes effective, after which available firm capacity will be allocated pursuant to the relevant provisions of the Tariff.

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.
