BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) – National Fuel Gas (NFG) is planning to build a pipeline spanning nearly 100 miles from Elma to Clermont, Pa.
The utility has started the federal review process to build the 97-mile long line, which will start at the Porterville Compressor Station in Elma.
Residents who live along the planned route have been notified by NFG and an informational meeting has already been held in Smethport, PA, Olean, Franklinville and Sardinia.
More meetings are set for Tuesday in Olean, Wednesday in Sardinia and Thursday in North Tonawanda.
The pipeline is being built to ease transportation of Pennsylvania-produced shale gas to market. Lines will be buried at least three feet underground and in agricultural areas, four feet underground.
