The sponsors of Commonwealth Pipeline announced today that they have suspended development of the project, a 200-mile natural gas pipeline.
No reason was given for the suspension. A statement on the company's website stated, "We will be updating the website periodically to provide current information regarding the project's status."
Partners in the project included UGI Energy Services, a subsidiary of Reading-based UGI Corp., Inergy Midstream LP of Kansas City, Mo., and the Washington, D.C.-based WGL Holdings.
According to previously published reports, the $1 billion, 200-mile natural gas pipeline was to run from the Marcellus Shale region of Lycoming County through Eastern Pennsylvania (including Berks and Schuylkill counties) and into the Baltimore and Washington,D.C. areas.
